This coin lends weight to the theory that some Celtic coin designs were derived from trance imagery.
Typical Celtic degraded head of Apollo, but with a missing face. Instead, the hairbar ends with a three pronged object in the nose area, below which a crescent has three claw like crescents hanging from it. Above the three pronged "nose", to the right, is a bell shaped object
Class 1: Yarmouth Right
Right facing horse with a tail ending with three crescents, each one ending in a pellet. The forelegs are formed by a six bladed windmill motif with a pellet centre. Two arms are parallel, forming the horse's forelegs. The lower arm of the windmill (the horse's foot) is a three toed claw. The segment between the upper right arms has a pellet triad, and the one below has an undeterministic object.
There are nine bold pellets above and three below the horse.
The exergue is formed of two parallel lines, joined by alternating diagonal lines. Between the diagonal lines are single pellets.
Class 2: Yarmouth Left
Similar to class 1 except that the horse faces left, the tail changes to a four-armed spiral, and the three toed claw on the "windmill" is now a seperate element. Only one example is known
