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

  • Ptolemaic Ptolemy III Gold Octodrachm NGC About Uncirculated 5X4 Fine Style

    What you have here is one of the largest gold coins of the ancient world, a gold octodrachm from Ancient Egypt during the Ptolemaic Dynasty. The coin itself is remarkable with fantastic detail and eye appeal. Containing just under an ounce of pure gold, the piece depicts the cherub-faced ruler facing right and a cornucopia on the reverse, thought to reflect the vast wealth of Egypt. The coin is nearly mint state and has been awarded the Fine Style designation by NGC Ancients, implying it to be of the highest artistic quality. This is a coin that should be put away for a long time. Learn More

  • Ptolemy IV Bronze 42 NGC Choice Extremely Fine Star 5x4

    This hefty Ptolemaic Bronze coin is impressive in size and weight and dates back around 2,500 years old. The size of a silver dollar but twice as thick, the obverse depicts Zeus and the reverse shows an eagle, common on coinage from the Ptolemaic Dynasty. Coins such as this appear to be very undervalued in our opinion. Learn More
