This is a stunning coin in hand and one of the most inexpensive mint condition Octodrachms you will encounter. Struck in an ounce of gold nearly 2,200 years ago, this gorgeous Arsinoe Octodrachm is a stunner. In fact, it has a proof-like look to it that we haven't seen before in coins from this era. Graffito is noted on the holder, referring to small, hairline scratches at 3 OClock on the obverse. We don't know how the marks got there, but we do know that this would be a $35,000 coin otherwise, so we LOVE the value found here. These are listed in the book the 100 Greatest Ancient coins and are highly popular. Learn More

This is without question the finest Arsinoe II Octodrachm we have ever encountered. Granted the fine style designation by NGC, this nearly one ounce gold coin has it all---a bold, centered strike and a remarkable overall appearance. This is listed in the book 100 Greatest Ancient coins and they typically come worn and abraded. This particular example is a show-stopper and would be a centerpiece in any advanced collection.

These Ptolemaic gold hemidrachms are extremely rare coins in any condition today due to their small size and infrequent auction appearances. This particular example has a wonderful overall look with great detail, depicting Ptolemy I on the obverse and an eagle on the back. NGC Ancients notes this coin was at some point mounted in jewelry, however, this distinction makes this example extremely affordable. The last one we had was similar in grade yet brought nearly $9K, so this one offers a lot of value for the low price. Learn More$3,982.50
