3 Iceni (1st century BC to 1st AD) silver units, unfortunately not in the best of condition but rescued from further destrution by the plough, but still showing some amazing Celtic art / design, I may be mistaken but if you look under the horse in picture 2 it looks like a hidden face looking at you. Brow / forehead a dot for each eye and a dot for the nose.

Well  done craft boy but I although you call these coins Celtic, There were NO CELTS in Britain if you do some research yourself you will find that you will not find mention of CELTS in documents prior to 1714 when George of Hanover came to the throne.
Before that you wont find any mention of Celts the inhabitants of Britain were British always were and always will be.
The histories were changed for religious and political purposes it suits the present establishment to hide your real history you ought to investigate this yourself because its your history and heritage the academics are hiding from you.  nice find anyway good luck

There were two migrations that came into Britain one in 1600 BC which were the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel who deffinately were not Celtic and another in 600 BC who were the remants of Troy Fact they were not Celtic either. To cover this up the Establishment invented Celts around 1714 to pacify George the first of Hanover.  Prior to that date there is no recorded history of any  Celts ever being in Britain.  For reference read Artorious Rex Discovered and you might learn about your real History and heritage not the fairy tales and fabrications put out by Bishop Stubbs and Mr. Guest in the 1850s.
The histories were changed for Political and Religious correctness and anyone who fails to research this subject is falling for the lies and inventions the establishment wants you to believe.
Of course there are similar objects in various museums around the world few people know about the Egyptian ties with Ireland either.
You could of course read Kingdom of the Ark available at amazon you might learn about how Scotland was named after an Egyptian princess married one of the Kings of Ireland too.  There is much you dont know or understand a little research might open your eyes?
But only you can question the validity of what i say if you have the time and effort to learn and teach yourself real history.

There is a lot to digest / understand here Alan I will read and read some more but I do understand where your coming from as a note the Iron age tribe name Iceni is as far as I am aware a recently conjured up name stemming from the word ECEN which appears on some coins, Tides are good at the minute so I will have a good think about what your saying while digging up some gold
