  • Achaemenid Empire Silver Siglos Choice Extremely Fine 5x3

    Type 3 Design with Bow and Spear 5th Century B.C. Extremely high graded Siglo from over 2,400 years ago depicting the Persian Hero King with a bow and spear. These normally come severely worn, however this example is well centered on a round flan. NGC has notated hairline scratches on the surfaces, hence graffito on the holder. Still a great coin for the price and far nicer than most you will encounter. Learn More

  • Croesus Gold Heavy Stater NGC Choice Extremely Fine

    Heavy Series Struck 561-546 B.C. This magnificent gold coin was struck nearly 2,600 years ago in modern-day Turkey and is the first series of gold coins ever struck. Produced by King Croesus of Lydia, the obverse depicts a lion and bull, representing strength and virility. The reverse has 2 incuse punches. Heavy Staters are extremely rare in any condition and to find one that has been preserved in such a lofty grade is an epic feat. We cannot overstate the importance of this rare ancient gold coin and it is absolutely museum-quality in all regards. Heavy Staters of Croesus are far more rare than the newer, light series of Croesus gold. Highly recommended and an absolute centerpiece coin for any advanced collection. Learn More

  • Lydian Electrum 1/3rd Stater NGC About Uncirculated

    Issued around 2,600 years ago, this 1/3rd stater struck in electrum is the first coinage ever with a true obverse design. This coinage pre-dates that of Croesus---this was struck by his father, King Alyattes around 600 B.C. The obverse shows a Lydian lion faced right with a sunburst over its head. The reverse has a perfectly centered double-incuse punch. In our opinion, these items are undervalued in today's market and are highly desirable pieces of early human history. Learn More
