Gallic coins were first copied from Greek and Roman models and created, after decades, their own styles and images influenced and reinterpreted by Celtic art. The 3rd-1st centuries were a period of development of the graphic creativity of the Gallic tribes.
In this period, the Celts invented all their symbols and affirmed their identity in new representations becoming more abstract and often of great beauty, far from the classic styles of Rome.
Coins hold an important role in the study of art and history of the Gallic Celts as the issues were important, produced by many mints, each one creating a specific way to engrave the dies and adding symbols.
This volume is the second part of a general study of Gallic coins (actually France, Belgium and part of Germany and Switzerland). The first one (La monnaie gauloise, maissance et evolution)
was published in February 2013. The first volume is focused on silver coins of the southern populations and on the development of gold coins.
This second book is more focused on billon and silver coinage of the 2nd-1st centuries BC, and the development of very large issues some of which bearing the names of the generals named in the volume of Cesar.
