Seller's Note/ This beautiful silver coin has been CM'd on the Rx to denote that it is a replica. Just saying...  An excellent reproduction for those who cannot afford the real thing! ;-)

The first Central European Celtic coins were based on Greek patterns. They imitated primarily the silver and gold coinage of the Macedonian rulers Philip II of Macedon and his son Alexander the Great. The motifs of a rider horse and human head were popular and relatively frequent on Celtic coins.
