CELTIC, North-Eastern series ('Corieltauvi'). Uninscribed. Circa 60-50 BC. AV Stater (19mm, 5.78 g, 2h). Devolved head of Apollo right / Stylized horse left; “anchor face” above; star to left, pelleted sun and zigzag pattern below. Cf. Van Arsdell 805-11 and 809; CCI 930416 (as Van Arsdell 805-11, same dies); cf. ABC 1734-7; cf. SCBC 29 and 390. Lightly toned. EF. Very rare.

This interesting stater bears the “anchor face” characteristic of the Sunflower type issues of the Corieltauvi, but also features a star below the horse’s head, as seen on the North East Coast type. It would appear that this coin is from a very rare and as-yet undescribed transitionary issue linking the two types together.

The final winners of all Triton XXIV lots will be determined during the live online sale that will be held on 19-20 January 2021. This lot is in Session Four, which begins 20 January 2021 at 2 PM ET.
