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!
