The text style is Aegean Island dating it to between 500 to 400 BCE. This one was incorrectly dated to 10 CE because someone thought they saw the name "Verica" on the left image of the coin which they could then fit with a king listed in a Roman text. The Atrebates were a Belgic tribe of the Iron Age and the Roman period originally dwelling in the Artois region of France. An offshoot of the Belgic tribe probably entered Britain before 54 BC and was successively ruled by kings Commius, Tincommius, Eppillus and Verica. This sloppy scholarship is typical of Academic linguistics these days.

This coin was discovered by a metal detectorist on Saturday 15th April 2023 in southern Britain (exact location not provided). Its dimensions are: Thickness: 3.2 mm, Weight: 5.26 g, Diameter: 17.26 mm.

Left image is an ash tree which is associated with the magical motion powers. Consequently, the ash tree is unlike the life power trees of oak, thorn, and yew tree with their broad crowns which correspond to the life network (Thorn and yew also have red berries). Together with the oak and thorn, the ash tree was part of a magical trilogy in fairy lore. Ash seedpods may be used in divination, and the wood has the power to ward off fairies, especially on the Isle of Man. In Gaelic Scotland children were given the astringent sap of the tree as a medicine and as a protection against witch-craft.

The right image is a winged horseman.
