    Oh, I love these tiny celtic gold coins!
    I have four, but none insular. One of them I discovered later that is indeed a fourrée. Very interesting. Well done, Panz!

    Thank you, I like them a lot. There are some plated (fourree) examples in Chris Rudd's book. Chris Rudd auctions are great source for Celtic gold/ silver coinage. Their grading is very conservative EF=TPG MS
