Details of the treasure remained sketchy and the identity of the lucky metal detecting enthusiast has not been revealed.
But it is understood Worcestershire County Council and the county coroner have been informed because of the potential archaeological significance.
The treasure, found at Bredon Hill, the site of an Iron Age fort in Worcestershire, is already being compared with the Staffordshire Hoard, the country’s biggest ever find of Anglo Saxon gold.
It netted lucky Terry and local farmer Fred Johnson a whopping £1.6 million each after being unearthed in a muddy field at Hammerwich, near Brownhills, West Midlands.
Dr Roger White, an expert in Roman archaeology from the University of Birmingham, described the possibility of a new find in Bredon as “exciting”.
