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