A gold Iron Age coin; a South Ferriby Stater, a North Eastern coin attributed to the Corieltauvi, probably dating from 50 BC - 20 BC (Haselgrove Period II, Phase 6). Compare ABC, p. 92, no. 1743. The centre of the coin is a coppery colour on both faces. It is probably made from a copper-rich alloy of gold. The flan is oval so any design under the horse is missing. The coin is 19.3mm diameter, 3.4mm thick and 5.39g.
