Celtic Britannia, Regini and Atrebates, Verica, as King and supposed third son of Commios circa 10-40 AD, Gold Stater (5.24g, 17mm), Inscribed coinage period, circa 10-40 AD. Obverse: Upright vine leaf central, “VI” horizontal to left, “RI” horizontal to right. Reverse: Celtic warrior on horseback galloping to the right, helmeted and without armour or clothes, holding horse’s reigns and equipped with oval shield and spear which are fastened to his torso, “C O F” surrounds. Spink-121; ABC-1193; Van Arsdell-520. Struck on an an alluring flan of rose-gold, the offered Verica stater is certainly impressive – the degree of off-centre strike can be easily overlooked as the horseman is fully on flan and only a minor portion of the horse’s head missing; a few minor hairline grazes, otherwise with great detail and a scarce issue, desirable as such, good Very Fine, reverse near Extremely Fine.
