An early medieval silver denier of the West Frankish King and Emperor Charles II the Bald (843–877) was found during a metal detector survey of a wellknown polycultural site with remnants of settlements from the Neolithic to the High Middle Ages Periods. Despite small traces of corrosion, the coin is perfectly preserved and was probably never in circulation. The denier is the eighth known find of a Carolingian coin in Bohemia, and the first specimen found in the Pilsen Region. The importance of the site is given mainly by its location on the Regensburg route, which provided the main connection between Bohemia and Bavaria. The importance of this route is underlined by the location of the customhouse with the church of St. Jakub in Domažlice, and especially the Benedictine mission cell in Cham, similar to the findings of Carolingian coins in Bavaria.
