Ancient Greece

The first ancient coins came from an area of Asia Minor which is today known as Turkey and were made of electrum, a naturally occurring mixture of silver and gold. This area is regarded as the birthplace of coinage and the first to use coined money in trade. The area included ancient kingdoms and cities of Ionia and Lydia.

Greek colonists, predominantly from Athens and Attica, settled the coastline of Asia Minor from the Mediterranean up to the Black Sea. Later Alexander overthrew the entire Achaemenid Empire, conquering a territory all the way to India. For a brief period the Macedonian Empire and the Greek influence was the most powerful in the world. Coins from this era are some of the most aesthetically pleasing and beloved designs in all of human history especially given the primitive methods they were manufactured.

  • Philip III Arridaeus Gold Stater NGC Mint State 5x4

    Philip III assumed the role of the emperor of Macedon after the death of his half-brother, Alexander the Great, in 323 B.C. This particular coin is razor sharp and well-centered and somehow survived the past 2,300 years nearly untouched. Coins of Alexander are encountered more often, it seems, than those of Philip III, and this was an opportune purchase at a recent ancient coin convention we attended. Highly recommended and beautiful--coin shown is the one you will receive. Learn More
