Ancient British silver unit of the Catuvellauni

Roger Paul said when this coin popped up it ended a barren spell. At this time of year there isn’t much land available to search so many of us will experience a few months with a below average find rate.

Roger’s coin is an Ancient British silver unit of the Catuvellauni. On the obverse, facing left, is a well detailed head with coiled hair. Facing right on the reverse is a goat with a ring and dot above and below.  In Ancient British Coins silver units like this one are listed as the Whaddon Goat type (number2487). In the Standard Catalogue the type falls under number 51.

Valuation

Roger’s find is well struck but the surfaces are a bit rough and the background is very dark but the coin is otherwise in about VF condition. It’s listed as very rare in ABC but I have seen a few specimens on the market quite recently. In its present condition a pre-sale auction estimate would be in the region of £350-400.
