The Corieltauvi tribe occupied modern day Lincolnshire and parts of adjoining Yorkshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. With an extensive series of inscribed and uninscribed coins in both gold and silver this makes for a very interesting series to collect.
The Scyphate gold quarter staters are worthy of mention, very thin and deeply dished with no parallel in the rest of the Iron Age series, presumably a very localised issue but why?
Some of the later inscribed staters bear long and wonderful names, there is some suggestion that these may be the names of two individuals, perhaps joint kings or the introduction of moneyers displayed on coins. ‘Volisios Domnovellaunos’ is my favourite, it puts our modern day names to shame, ‘Bob’ not quite having the same ring.

Minted by various Celtic tribes during the Iron Age, primarily in what is now modern-day Europe. These coins were typically made of gold or silver and served as a form of currency and a symbol of wealth and power within Celtic society. The designs on Celtic staters often featured intricate patterns, geometric shapes, and stylized depictions of animals or mythical creatures, reflecting the cultural and artistic sensibilities of the Celtic people.
