Ancient Egypt

The Ptolemaic Dynasty of Egypt was a Hellenistic Kingdom that started after the death of Alexander the Great. Egypt was one of the wealthiest of all ancient cultures and their vast wealth was reflected in their amazing coinage.

Ptolemy I, one of Alexander's generals, became the ruler and self-declared pharaoh of Egypt from 323-282 BC. The Ptolemaic family reign lasted until the death of Cleopatra VII and the Roman conquest in 30 BC.  Ancient gold coins from this timeframe, called octodrachms, are some of the largest and most impressive in ancient history, containing nearly one ounce of pure gold!

  • Ptolemy I Gold Hemidrachm NGC Choice Extremely Fine

    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
