Greek Coins

ancient coin buyers guideAncient Greek coinage is known for its amazing beauty and wide variety of artistic style. Most Greek coinage were made using silver, gold, electrum (a naturally occurring alloy of silver and gold), copper alloy, and bronze. Some of the most artistically advanced coins in human history were issued during this time and amazingly struck thousands of years ago.

  • 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

  • Philip III Arridaeus Gold Stater NGC Mint State 5x4

    Philip III assumed the role of the emperor of Macedon after the death of his half-brother, Alexander the Great, in 323 B.C. This particular coin is razor sharp and well-centered and somehow survived the past 2,300 years nearly untouched. Coins of Alexander are encountered more often, it seems, than those of Philip III, and this was an opportune purchase at a recent ancient coin convention we attended. Highly recommended and beautiful--coin shown is the one you will receive. Learn More
