celtic coins

Replicas of Celtic coins. In the period of their greatest expansion the Celts became the first people in Central Europe who began to mint their own coins. The Gauls met with money during their campaigns in the 4th century BCE as mercenaries and beginning in the 3rd century BCE, when their production began to be higher than their domestic consumption, the first minted coins appeared. The principal materials used for coinage were silver and gold. The oldest documented coins are from the 2nd century BCE, and Gauls’ models copied earlier Madeconian-Greek denominations such as staters, drachmas, and tetradrachms. These simulacra were rude in form and were evenutally replaced with coins minted in the Celts’ native artistic style using motifs that were sacred to them, such as the horse. The names of individuals (probably local chieftains) could be seen primarily on older coinage. In the Bohemian territories depictions of wild boars were frequently to be found, as well as a coiled dragon and solar symbols. An extraordinary cup-shaped gold coin now known as the rainbow cup  appeared in the first half of the last century BCE. Some 5000 or so very curious old coins - a haul totalling over 40 kg - were discovered in the Podmokly coin hoard that was uncovered in 1771. Besides rainbow cups, there was also another type of cup-shaped coin found, which has been called the mussel or shell stater, or golden mussel. Its purity was as high as 97% and each coin had a weight averaging 6.5 grams. The most recent type of Celtic coin was the large (about 17 grams) silver Biatec type, which was minted in the southwest of what is now Slovakia ca 75 – 50 BCE.
