Ancient Celtic error Gold Stater

A rare variety of a Celtic gold coin will be auctioned in England next month. It is one of just eight Celtic gold stater coins known with this mistake. The coin is supposed to read “RICON” or “RIGON” across the obverse, indicating one of the issuing ruler’s titles (“high king”).

Instead, the inscription is misspelled as the recognizable English word “COIN”
