No match in my catalogs (Dembski Coll. KHM, Göbl OTA+Noricum, Pink Ostkelten) discovered, I´m sorry.
From the style I think it´s a coin by the eastern celts, never seen a similar type before. But this means nothing, celtic coinage is always good for surprises in new and unknown types. Maybe the coin is not listed. Any clue where it comes from? The locality would be interesting. Can you see what the reverse shows? Probably this is a horse left? I think, I can see a horse when I flip the coin-pic 180 degrees. Important question: do you think the coin is genuine? This is hard to say only from pics.

 Hello Taurisker and thank you for your time. I unfortunately do not know where it was found. Ac search has one similar that says it's an unrecorded type but gives a BMC S 140 http://www.acsearch.info/record.html?id=490959  so I'm guessing its in their catalog of Celtic coins but I don't have that one.
 I also cannot guarantee authenticity. Under a microscope it appears weathered but im no expert. I hopefully will have my new lens for my camera tomorrow and can take a better pic to post in the authentication section. Thank you again and have a great day!
