  • 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

  • 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
