Large (33mm, 9.5g.) Celtic ring money, ca. 800-500 BC

Large (33mm, 9.5g.) Celtic ring money, ca. 800-500 BC
Greenish patina, great condition, 33mm, 9.5g., bronze. Very attractive. Large rings are relatively scarce, rings such as this one, are quite rare and hard to find!

We do not clean our rings - we sell them as they come from hoards and after washing them with warm water to remove the adhering dust. Although they might look nicer while shiny,rings with removed patina (as many sold on ebay) are arguably worthless, since it becomes impossible to authenticate it and prove its'' age. Celtic ring money are my most favorite type of artifacts/coins (I bought my first ring when I was a high school kid:-), and we have a huge inventory of authentic ring money. When you buy from us, the authenticity of the rings and your satisfaction are guaranteed :)

Before the introduction of struck coinage in Celtic lands, Celtic ringmoney(gold, silver and bronze rings), celtic arrowhead and bell money were used as currency in Celtic lands in Danube area, France, EnglandandIreland. Sometimes these rings took a pretty elaborate shape (suchas"wheel money" in Gaul, star-shaped rings, interlinked rings etc.)andare very interesting collectible items, that can also be used as wonderful pendants or finger rings. An inexpensive way to touchthemagical Celtic past.
