Celtic Horses of Britain Stater Coin
Dating back to the early first century AD, these coins struck under the Celtic king Cunobelin are some of the finest of pre-Roman Britain.
One side features a young, strong and unbridled galloping horse, with branch overhead - a symbol of victory, and bears the name of the king beneath. The other boasts a large, full head of barley, a symbol of the kings' wealth sourced from grain. Providing a good hearty loaf or a thick and refreshing brew, barley was a chief staple in the ancient world on which a merry life depended.
- hot struck from solid 99.9 pure silver (see methodology)
- ~19-21mm, 5.5-6g pure silver
- If ordering in gold, 6g 24kt pure gold
- Just like the originals, each is hand struck, so allow for slight irregularity and variance from the photos
- Each coin shipped outside of Canada is marked discreetly with a tiny punch on the back or side making it a legal 'replica'
