Stater of the Corieltavi

Ian Briggs sent in the images of this coin, which was found on one of Ian’s sites by Ellis Hargreaves. The finder is only 16 years old and is said to be over the moon with this coin.

The coin is an Ancient British gold stater.  It was struck by the Corieltavi and is an example of the South Ferriby type. On the obverse is a degraded representation of a wreath and on the reverse a disjointed horse with a star below.

In Ancient British Coins this starter is listed as number 1743 (there are some minor varieties) and in the Standard Catalogue it is number 390.


The flan is a bit small and there is a noticeable striking crack in the edge but the coin is otherwise in VF condition. The type isn’t particularly scarce so my price range would be no higher than £350-400.
