The Royal Mint is currently selling the last pieces of its 500-coin "portion" of the Brussels Hoard. Each Henry III silver penny comes with a certificate and a book about the find in Brussels (about 100 years ago), and costs £145.

Won't buy one myself, but the story about the find is interesting. Some further info here:

Seaby was selling them 40 odd years ago in a packet with six of the coins, I have one that has the earliest type of Edward I pennies that were minted ca. 1272 in it.
