  • Carthage Silver 1/2 Shekel General Hannibal MS NGC

    We have never had the opportunity to offer a silver half-shekel issued by Hannibal in 210 B.C and this happens to be one of the absolute finest examples that NGC has ever graded. Awarded a lofty mint state grade, for the money this is a great coin given the fact that an extremely fine example recently brought over $5K at auction. The obverse depicts what is thought to be a lifelike rendition of the famous General and the reverse depicts an elephant, the animal used by Hannibal to win battles. This is an epic coin and its importance cannot be overstated. Hannibal is one of the most renowned Generals in human history, and this half silver shekel is the highest grade that NGC has ever awarded for this rare issue. Learn More
