    Roman Empire, Faustina Sr., AD 138-140/1, Silver Denarius, NGC Extremely Fine - Golden Age Hoard Faustina, Sr. was the wife of Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius, one of the Five Good Emperors of Rome. She was in power for only two short years so coins issued under her likeness are scarce.

  • Apollonia Pontica Silver Drachm Mint State NGC

    Issued from the late 5th - 4th Century B.C. Our 2,400 year old Apollonian Silver Drachms offer a great combination of historical significance, beauty and rarity; all for a surprisingly low price. Struck in the Greek city of Apollonia Pontika on the western Black Sea coast, the obverse features a mythical creature called a Gorgon, which was thought to ward off evil. The reverse depicts an anchor and a crawfish, reflecting the cities dependence on maritime commerce. The anchor depicted on the reverse is actually one of the first anchors of modern design rendered in Greek art.

  • Pamphylia "Wrestlers" Silver Stater NGC Very Fine

    This attractive silver stater is one of our favorite ancient designs. The obverse depicts two Olympic wrestlers in lifelike fashion and was struck between 2,300 and 2,400 years ago. The reverse shows a slinger; someone who uses a sling as a projectile weapon using a sone, clay, or lead sling-bullet. To the right of the slinger is a triskele, a motif that consists of a triple spiral of three bent human legs. This symbol appeared in many early cultures as far back as 4,400 BC.

  • Constantinian AE3/4 BI Nummus NGC Mint State

    Emperor Constantine I, the Great, issued a new type of commemorative coin from 330-346 A.D. Instead of depicting the emperor, these bronze coins portrayed the tale of how Rome was founded and built. The story tells that twins named Romulus and Remus were raised as infants by a she-wolf. Eventually, Romulus would murder his brother, and would found Rome, after his own name. These interesting coins depict this tale, and on the reverse you can see the she-wolf staring back at the young boys. On the obverse you can see the words, "VRBS ROMA"--Latin for "City of Rome". These are very interesting coins and they've been graded mint condition by NGC Ancients. Learn More

    Struck over 1,800 years ago, this intricate Double Denarius depicts Emperor Postumos, crowned and facing right. Postumos was a Roman general who became emperor around 260 A.D. The reverse depicts Salus, feeding a snake. These coins were inititally struck from silver, however, as the currency became debased, they were eventually struck from bronze, as this example is.
