Egyptian Empire

In 305 B.C. he declared himself King Ptolemy I and ruled over the Egyptians as a pharaoh. The Ptolemaic dynasty lasted until the Romans defeated them in 30 B.C.

  • Ptolemy IX Silver Tetradrachm NGC About Uncirculated 4x3

    For some reason, silver coinage from the latter part of the Ptolemaic Dynasty has a great overall appearance. This example is bright white and flashy, with an image of Ptolemy on the obverse in lifelike fashion. The facial features and hair are quite intricate, indeed. For the price, this near-mint condition example should not be overlooked. Very nice. Learn More

  • Ptolemy I Gold Hemidrachm NGC Choice Extremely Fine

    These Ptolemaic gold hemidrachms are extremely rare coins in any condition today due to their small size and infrequent auction appearances. This particular example has a wonderful overall look with great detail, depicting Ptolemy I on the obverse and an eagle on the back. NGC Ancients notes this coin was at some point mounted in jewelry, however, this distinction makes this example extremely affordable. The last one we had was similar in grade yet brought nearly $9K, so this one offers a lot of value for the low price. Learn More
