A hiker stumbled upon a rare 2000-year old gold coin at an archaeological site in eastern Galilee. The coin displays the image of the Emperor Augustus, who ruled from 27 BC until 14 AD. It was minted in 107 AD by Emperor Trajan, and was part of a series of coins that paid tribute to previous emperors. Only one other coin like this is known to exist, and is in the British Museum in London. The Antiquities Authority plans to officially thank the hiker with a certificate for reporting and turning over the invaluable artifact.
