From the KJG Collection of British Celtic Coins. Ex Rudd 93 (May 2007), 43.

The Trinovantes were a tribe centered in Essex and southern Suffolk who by the time of Caesar's invasion were already suffering the depredations of their neighbors, the Catuvellauni in the north and the Cantiaci in the south. In fact, the attribution of this coin as Trinovantian is uncertain; it may in fact be a Catuvellaunian issue.
