  • Ionia Electrum 1/3 Stater NGC About Uncirculated 5x4

    What you see here is an example of some of the first coinage ever issued in the history of mankind. This third stater, or trite, was struck nearly 2,650 years ago using electrum, a mixture of gold and silver. It is a very archaic design with either pellets, or cloud-like images on the surface of the coin. The reverse shows an incuse punch. These extremely rare coins were issued in and around modern-day Turkey and this example is graded very high. Learn More

  • Galba Silver Tetradrachm NGC Choice Very Fine 4x3

    We absolutely love this coin and NGC agrees, giving the coin the coveted Fine Style designation. Even though it has been graded in Choice very fine, this coin has an amazing strike and phenomenal detail. It depicts the emperor facing right, in lifelike fashion, while the back depicts a perched eagle, facing left. Galba ruled for a very short time period, from 68-69 AD and coins issued under him can be tough to find today, particularly rarer denominations like this large silver tetradrachm. Learn More
    $1,632.00

  • Galba Silver Quinarius NGC Very Fine 5x2

    Here we have a relatively inexpensive, lightly circulated silver coin struck under Emperor Galba, who ruled from 68-69 AD--a very short time. Because of his short rule, coins bearing his likeness are relatively difficult to find, particularly scarce denominations like this silver quinarius. Learn More
    $1,632.00

  • Nero Silver Denarius NGC Choice Very Fine Star 5x5

    Very attractive, evenly worn silver denarius of Emperor Nero, one of the most despised rulers in Roman history. Learn More
    $1,904.00

  • Ionia Electrum 1/6th Stater NGC Mint State 5x4

    This is a remarkable coin struck around 500 B.C. that has been preserved in mint state condition. The obverse depicts a Corinthian soldier in lifelike form, and the coin itself has been preserved as if it were struck yesterday. Electrum coinage in such a high grade is highly desirable and very rare. Learn More
    $4,420.00

  • Persian Silver Tetradrachm NGC Choice Very Fine 3x3

    This is an amazingly rare coin in any condition. It depicts the Persian Hero-King running with bow drawn, ready to attack. This is a large silver tetradrachm--most Persian silver coins are smaller and called "siglos". It is the first of this design we've handled and even though it was circulated long ago, all detail is quite evident. Learn More

  • Justinian II Gold Solidus 2nd Reign NGC Mint State 4x4

    Clipped at the mint due to being overweight after being struck, this is a remarkable coin with incredible detail. It is the second depiction of Christ on a coin, second only to the first reign Justinian example from a decade prior. The obverse depicts a "younger" version of Christ. These are prominently listed in the 100 Greatest Ancient coins books. Learn More
