Athenian Empire Coins

The Athenian Empire came into existence due to the struggle against the Persian invasion. The two most powerful city-states, Athens and Sparta, put aside their differences to fight the common enemy as they united the Greek military forces. The empire forged both political and economic dominance in the area from 460-430 B.C.

  • Athenian Silver Owl Tetradrachm NGC Extremely Fine

    Ranked as #10 out of the 100 Greatest Ancient Coins, the 2,450-year-old Athenian Silver Owl is an impressive ancient coin with a remarkable history. The Owl could be found in every marketplace in the Meditteranean and beyond back then, and today they survive as a testament to the glory of the city of Athens. Until our Buying Trust acquired this most recent group, owls of this quality brought double what we're asking for them today. We believe once these are absorbed by the marketplace, prices will quickly recover to normal (higher) levels. The coin shown may not be the actual coin you receive, but certainly indicative of the quality you can expect. Learn More

  • Athenian Silver Owl Full Crest Tetradrachm NGC CHVF

    Out of 1,100 Owls sent to NGC for grading, only 17 of them were awarded the coveted "Full Crest" notation on the NGC holder. Coins with the full crest possess a fully centered strike on the obverse that depicts the entire helmet and face of Athena. This was an unusual occurrence when these coins were made because the image is oftentimes larger than the surface of the coin, hence, parts of the design are missing. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More
