Type 2 was struck in both gold and silver and has the Hero-King with a drawn bow. Type 3 was struck in both metals and has the King with a bow and spear. Type 4 was struck in both metals and has the King with a bow and knife.

  • 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
