A bust of Arsinoe II is shown on the obverse with a cornucopia on the reverse, symbolizing the vast wealth of ancient Egypt. These are prominently featured in the 100 Greatest Ancient coins book and the coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More

  • 1794 1 Cent NGC Very Fine Details

    Imagine where this attractive large cent from 1794 has been over the past 225's a coin that was circulating in the earliest days of the United States of America! Even though corrosion has been notated on the NGC holder, this 1794 Large Cent is a wonderful example of our nations earliest coinage. Lady Liberty is fully intact and there are no distracting cuts on either side of the coin. If you are looking for a special, inexpensive piece of early America--take this one and run. Coin shown is the exact coin for sale. Learn More

  • 1768LM JM Peru 8 Escudo NGC AU-53

    The value, age and rarity of gold eight escudos continues to amaze us the deeper we dig into this area of the market. This stunning gold coin contains nearly .8 oz of pure gold and was issued 250 years ago in Peru. Amazingly, only four are known and certified by PCGS or NGC and this is the third finest, with none in mint state condition. If you're looking for an area of the market that screams of value, look no further than Spanish Colonial gold escudos. This particular coin is very high-end for the grade and has amazing luster on both sides. Learn More

Only TWO are known in any condition, with this being the finest known. When was the last time you saw a big gold coin that's the finest known for under $10K?

  • Justinian II (2nd Reign) Gold Solidus NGC Mint State 5x4

    Outstanding example of Byzantine-Era gold and the second gold coin to ever depict Jesus Christ. Typically these coins are circulated or mint-impaired, however, this particular example is truly pristine with flashy surfaces and a bold, strong strike. Issued during the second reign of Justinian II around 700 AD, this coin has been certified mint state condition by NGC Ancients. We love the value in this popular issue as it is desirable by many different types of collectors today. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More

  • Alexander the Great Drachm NGC Choice Mint State Lifetime, Fine Style

    As of today, there have been NO coins graded higher by NGC Ancients for this beautiful issue struck during the rule of Alexander the Great. These intricate silver Drachms (pronounced 'drahms')were struck over 2,300 years ago and have been preserved in an immaculate state, with crisp strikes and a remarkable overall look. Each coin has been awarded the Fine Style designation by NGC, implying it to be of the highest artistic quality. The obverse depicts Hercules with a lion-scalp helmet and the reverse features Zeus atop a throne holding an eagle, with various symbols, some mintmarks. If you're looking for a remarkable Ancient at a surprisingly reasonable price, this is it. 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

  • Caligula Silver Denarius NGC Choice Very Fine 4x5

    As time went on in the Roman Empire, the issuance of silver denarius coins rose dramatically. Early silver denarius coins like this one depicting Caligula are legitimate rarities in any condition--particularly those that have original and beautiful cabinet-toning like the present example. We only handle one or two of these each year, if we're lucky. Caligula reigned for a very short period (37-41 AD) and collectors looking for a nice example of his coinage are often forced to wait for quite some time. This is a coin to put away for a while, for sure. Learn More

  • 1810NR JF Colombia 8 Escudo NGC Mint State 61

    Superb value in Spanish Colonial gold! This 1810 Colombian 8 Escudo is very attractive for the assigned grade and priced at a reasonable level. Only a few dozen are known in any condition and this easily falls in the top 25% known. Learn More
