Celtic Ring Money

Ring money of bronze, of silver, and of gold was used by the Celts in trade from Ireland to the Danube region. The dating of Celtic ring money is uncertain. Some authorities date the use of ring money from as early as 800 B.C. and it may have been used as late as 100 B.C. Some believe the bronze rings are actually just strap fittings, not a trade currency. Bronze rings are, however, sometimes found in quite large hoards and, in Spain, they are sometimes found with silver bar and disk ingots, and with 2nd century B.C. denarii of the Roman Republic. Undoubtedly they were used as fittings but they were also undoubtedly used as a store of wealth and for trade.

This curious, extremely rare, and very special object is clearly related to the knobbed ring money of the Black Sea region. The referenced similar object in Victoor is inferior in design and manufacture and does not have a loop. Cast as a single piece, it is the product of a highly skilled craftsman and was very likely made for an important person to wear.
SH69205. Bronze Ring Money, cf. Victoor VIII 22 (crude, no loop); "ring money" orb made up of six knobbed wire meridians and equator, with a loop for suspension, probably 3rd - 2nd century B.C.; extremely rare; SOLD
