By the first century AD the most advanced British Celtic tribes, those living in the south-east of Britain, had developed a very sophisticated currency, with a range of coins struck in gold, silver
and bronze. This small silver coin of Verica, ruler of the Atrebates, reflects the influence of Roman art in the horns of plenty and vase on the obverse and the eagle on the reverse.
