An ancient Celtic fouree stater dating to the Late Iron Age, approximately 80 B.C. - 100 A.D.

The obverse with the devolved head of Apollo right.

The reverse with disjointed horse.

Coin production began in Britain around the end of the second century B.C. making this example one of the first coins to be minted in the British isles.

Almost since the advent of coinage there have been those who sought to profit from counterfeiting; hiding base metal cores inside precious metal jackets. This particular example is a plated stater, constructed from a bronze core and covered with thick gold / electrum foil, then struck to produce a seemingly official, pure precious metal coin. However, close inspection reveals the bronze core beneath, betraying its true nature!

Diameter: 13 mm.

Weight: 3.65 g.

Provenance:

Ex English private collection.

2) In the very unlikely event the license is refused, you will be refunded in full.
3) The licence is normally granted within 2 weeks, but may take as long as 4 weeks in extreme cases.
4) A valid export licence affirms the legal status of a relevant ancient item on the art market.  It is important for the investment value of the piece.
