Celticized head right, hair flowing around; above, boar(?) standing right; ornament hanging to right / Celticized biga right, charioteer devolved into creature above; ‘vexillum’ to right, hanging from wavy line held by charioteer; below, boar standing right. B. Roth, “Ancient Gaulish Coins, including those of the Channel Islands” in BNJ 1912, p. 8, 1 = (this coin, illustrated); Blanchet p. 316, n. 2; cf. Depeyrot, NC VIII, 7 (see also p. 18, 9.11 = Brenot & Sheers 946, for a silver stater from the same dies); cf. D&T 2254–5; cf. de la Tour 6982. Toned, slightly soft strike on obverse. Good VF. Extremely rare.

Ex Peus 425 (7 November 2019), lot 32; Auctiones AG 8 (27 June 1978), lot 2; P. J. Prankerd Collection (Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge, 15 November 1909), lot 316 (part of; lot purchased by A. H. Baldwin & Sons).

The coin from the same dies in the Museum of Fine Arts in Lyon is cataloged as a silver issue by Brenot & Scheers, but as the present coin is struck from base gold, one wonders whether the Lyon coin is actually also a gold issue that is so debased as to appear as silver?
