    Struck nearly 2,200 years ago, these large and intricate silver tetradrachms struck by Antiochus VII have remarkable detail and history.

  • Diocletian BI Nummus NGC About Uncirculated

    Diocletain was a Roman Emperor from 284 to 305 A.D. From humble beginnings, he rose through the military ranks and became emperor of Rome, stabilizing the empire, marking the end of the Crisis of the Third Century. Due to illness, he resigned from rule in 305 yet his amazingly high-quality Bronze coins have survived the test of time. Each coin in this offering has been certified in About Uncirculated condition with remarkable detail on both the front and back of the coin. The obverse depicts a proud and strong bust of Diocletian facing right, and they are large--bigger than a modern silver half-dollar. If you're looking for a superb gift or great entry-point into the ancient coin market, these are tough to beat for the money. Learn More

  • Syria Augustus Silver Tetradrachm NGC Choice Extremely Fine 5X4

    One of the larger, more attractive silver designs you will encounter and a solid value for the price, in our opinion. The ruler is shown in lifelike fashion, facing right in a regal glare. Augustus was one of the more noteworthy early rulers of Ancient Rome and higher-end coins bearing his likeness, like this one, are in very high demand. The size is similar to that of a modern silver dollar. Highly recommended for the price and just a great coin in all regards! Learn More

  • Roman Silver Double-Denarius NGC Mint State

    Twice the size of a denarius, these large silver Double Denarii are great coins for the price, particularly in mint condition. We have only a handful available, and they depict either Philip I (244-249 A.D) or Gordian III, who ruled from 238-244 A.D. Superb coins for the price that are large in size, and certified mint condition from nearly 2,000 years ago. Highly recommended and a great starter coin when delving into the ancient coin market.
