Anomalous Corieltauvian D Stater


Recommended Posts

I have been searching a while for a Gold Celtic Stater with a nice abstract Horse.

Last week I finally found one that I fell in love with.😘

And is now one of my most favourite coins.


Last week as a Celtic Newbie I tried to Identify the coin.

The plain Reverse made me think at the Ambiani Staters used as War Money.

But the  coin has a bronze tone to. And the "Rose gold" made me think it could be British.


So I searched Van Arsdell And thought I found it as being A Corieltauvian South Ferriby Gold Stater type 811-7

And I was even more exited that this type with almost plain Obverse seems pretty rare.

So I documented it this coin found a nice spot in my collection.

Yes nice coin. I think the existence of the variety depends on a die cutting error, so it almost has to be a die match - the cutter would have to make the same error twice otherwise.

In ABC, they don't split out minor variations. They have it as ABC 1743, which includes VA 811 and 837, noting the existence of some with worn obverse dies ('rare'), as well as variations in the 'anchor' above the horse and the number of points on the star.
