  • Achaemenid Gold Daric NGC Choice About Uncirculated 5x4

    This particular design type is the first and oldest of all Persian gold coins. Struck sometime around 500 BC, this intricate and attractive gold daric has been certified in Choice About Unc. condition by NGC Ancients. It is struck on a round flan and depicts the Persian Hero King running right, ready to attack the enemy with a drawn bow and a quiver on his back. The reverse has a simple, sole incuse punch that occurred when the coin was struck so long ago. This is an incredibly rare coin in any condition and it is very unusual to encounter one of these in a higher grade. If you're looking for a museum-quality coin to hold onto for a while, we highly recommend this "type 2" Persian daric. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More

  • Sicily Silver Tetradrachm NGC Very Fine 5X4

    This is one of the earliest silver coins you will encounter and the craftsmanship and artistry is incredible in many regards. It is over 2,500 years old and has an obverse portrait surrounded by four dolphins along with the artist's inscription. The back depicts a charioteer being pulled to victory along with Nike flying overhead. These early tetradrachms appear to be highly undervalued to us and they are seldom encountered with such a centered strike and complete originality like this example. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Highly recommended for the price. Learn More

  • Arsinoe II Silver Decadrachm NGC Choice Extremely Fine 5x3

    This large decadrachm hails from the Ptolemaic (Egyptian) empire roughly 2,300 years ago and depicts Arsinoe II on the obverse with a cornucopia on the back, meant to reflect the vast wealth of the kingdom.
    Both gold and silver examples of this issue were produced and today the silver coins are far scarcer than their gold counterparts. Coin pictured is the exact coin you will receive. Amazing in all regards and a wonderful ancient specimen. Learn More

  • Xerxes II Gold Daric TY3 NGC Choice Mint State Star Fine Style

    This coin really has it all--the high grade of Choice Mint State, a star for fantastic eye appeal, and the coveted Fine Style designation, implying it to be of the highest quality of craftsmanship!
    Rarely do we encounter coins of this magnitude and quality from so long ago. The Hero-King on the front is intricately etched and has a bow and spear, ready to attack the enemy. This is one of the nicest ancients from the recent ANA show in Philly and the coin pictured is the coin you will receive since we only have one available. Highly recommended. Learn More

  • Croesus Silver Full Stater NGC Extremely Fine 4x3

    This Lydian full silver stater was issued by King Croesus sometime around 560 B.C and has been preserved far better than most over the past 2,600 years. It is known to be the first true silver coinage ever issued and is very desirable as a result, particularly the largest denomination of the series, the full stater. The obverse shows an image of a lion and bull, representing strength and fertility. The reverse employs a double-incuse punch that happened when the coin was struck so long ago. The basal value for a Full Silver Stater is $5,000 so we feel the premium for this example is fully justifiable. The silver staters of Croesus were issued in six different sizes ranging from a full stater down to a tiny 1/24th stater. Coin pictured is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More

  • Tiberius II Constantine Gold NGC Choice Mint State 5x5

  • Antiochus VII Silver Tetradrachm NGC About Uncirculated

    Struck nearly 2,200 years ago, these large and intricate silver tetradrachms struck by Antiochus VII have remarkable detail and history. Besides the obvious historic importance, these coins are hand-struck in high-relief and no two coins are exactly alike. They are excellent examples of Hellenistic art. Certified by NGC in About Uncirculated condition, they are remarkable ancient silver coins, indeed. The obverse depicts Antiochus VII facing right, similar to the tetradrachms of Alexander the Great. The reverse has a standing figure surrounded by various implements and markings. We feel that attractive, high-end ancient silver offers a great value in the current marketplace and these are absolutely stunning in all regards. Highly recommended while available. Learn More
