Product description

This coin was minted between 9 and 40 AD by Cunobelin king of the Trinovantes, a Celtic tribe that ruled over South England. His tribe owned a large part of the British pewter production and export that was already essential for making pewter and bronze during the Bronze Age. As a result, the Trinovantes were very rich and king Cunobelin was well liaised with the Roman Empire. His children were educated in Rome and they brought with them a large amount of knowledge and innovative ideas. Cunobelin was Caratacus' father.

Caratacus would grow up to be a prominent leader during the Celtic revolt against the Romans during Emperor Claudius' reign.

Nevertheless this coin is very Celtic. The front side has grain, referring to the most primary basis of food. The back shows a galloping horse. The Celts were well-known as excellent riders. On the coin Cunobelin refers to himself as Rex, king of Britain.

This coin is a replica of originals. It is made of leadless pewter, mined in the area where the Trinovantes' mines were originally located.
