Looking for advice about coin database with geographical finding

Hello,

 

I am a new here, so sorry if I am in wrong place.

For a serious project with my grandson I am looking for data of geographical distribution of coins findings that I think can be considered as a characteristic of trade connections. What we want to do is to create a map of finding of certain coin(s) of certain country in other countries. Coin type, country of origin and even time of mint not matter much for a moment (or at least it seems so).

We would greatly appreciate any advise about how we can collect this type of data. Preferably it should be a database (databases) of coins with geographical data (preferably in a form of longitude-latitude) of their findings.

Many thanks in advance.

There are many databases that provide this information such as the EMC, UKDFD and PAS. However it will be flawed as many countries outlaw metal detecting without a licence and many such databases do not include foreign coins. There will also be huge disparities with certain coins/countries - e.g. Danegeld from England to Scandinavia.

 

In principle, a great idea. Best of luck and keep us updated.
