Hi all!
I'm interested in buying my first ever celtic coin and I am interested in the following unattributed piece.
Sadly my expertise in the subject is near null.

What are your thoughts regarding authenticity, and a rough estimate value?



Material seems to be silver, declared weight 2,6 g and diameter 16 mm.
I would be very grateful for any help or guidance you may provide,

Have a great week and thanks again.

Found similar on
VCOINS:- 'Celtic Elusates'. price 400 Euros but with a better obverse.
Cat. Feugere & Py ELU 3587. (date ~ 125-75 BC)

Also found
WILDWINDS:- Celtic Elusates (or Sociates) three images with notes.

Google Images:- 'Celtic Elusates' also yields several pictures similar.
More searching can be done here.


The Elsates (or Sociates tribe) inhabited the area in the South of France, in the area of Bordeaux.

Here's another from a reputable dealer which just finished at auction, for price comparison:

They do have other Celtic pieces at lower prices right now if you're not wedded to that particluar coin.

I have reasonable knowledge of British Celtic (not so much Gallic) and it looks genuine to me, i.e. there are things there that a forger probably wouldn't do on a sub-500 Euro coin, like light corrosion on the horse, a weak obverse, surface damage. Nothing looks 'wrong', and it isn't suspiously perfect.

Assuming the price is sensible, it's a nice coin!
