Hi guys my mate found this stunner, although we can't find a matching example in Spink. So wondered if it might be european? Love Celtic stuff

Nice find pmm and ID John :thumbsup:

These are interesting Kentish coins these, with the obverse being almost identicle to and issue of Cunobeline from Essex apart from one has AMMINVS and the other CVNOBEIIINVS around the flowers (not sure what flowers they are ?).
It has been suggested that Amminus was Cunobelin's son :thumbsup:

Right you are, may be rye or oats based only on agricultural agronomy?
But more than happy to be wrong
