Here is a link that will help you identify if you are sure this coin is of the UK Iron Age:-

Is there a design on the other side of your coin?

I might be very wrong, but it doesn't look to me to be Iron Age in style. It looks somewhat Roman, along the lines of a radiate, but not official, with a blundered legend. Perhaps a barbarous radiate from the 270s. It doesn't even look like most of those but at least has a resemblance. Victorinus looks very much like that - his official issues include a few where he's holding a shield in a similar fashion, although in those he's facing left. The reverse would usually be a standing figure but seems to be another bust in a radiate crown?

Barbarous radiate, I would say. Turning the reverse 135 degrees clockwise, I can see a crude standing figure.

@nun, looks like maybe it is time to move this thread over to the ancients section of CCF to get more eyes on it.
