  • Mithridates II Silver Drachm NGC AU

    Mithridates II ruled from 121-91 B.C. and these intricate silver drachms are much rarer than their price implies. In fact, we have never handled them before this current offering in any condition. Mithridates considered himself the "king of kings" and the Parthian empire reached its greatest during his rule. The obverse is incredibly detailed for the assigned grade and depicts a bust of Mithridates II facing left while the reverse is very finely engraved with several different letters and symbols, with the center showing Arsaces I holding a bow. These are great coins for the price and we only have a few available in this grade. Highly recommended. Learn More
