Ancient Persia

The Persian Empire (c.550-330 BC), also known as the Achaemenid Empire, created ancient gold and silver coins depicting the Persian Hero-King with a bow and other weapons over 2,500 years ago. The Achaemenid Empire was the largest empire at that period in ancient history, but fell to the invasion of Alexander the Great of Macedonia.

    First silver coinage ever in human history circa 561 B.C. and very attractive for the grade. King Croesus of Lydia issued the "lion and Bull" staters until he was conquered by the Persian Empire.

  • King Croesus Gold 1/12 Stater Light NGC Choice Extremely Fine 4x5

    This is the first gold coinage issued in human history nearly 2,600 years ago and was struck by King Croesus of Lydia. Croesus figured out how to refine gold and silver around 561 B.C. and each size represented different values, however, all depict the "lion and bull" design--representing strength and fertility. For the money this is a superb buy in our opinion. This is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More

  • King Croesus Gold Stater "Light Series" NGC CHAU 5x3

    WOW! This amazing full gold stater from Lydia is an absolute masterpiece and seldom seen finer than this. Struck around 560 B.C., it depicts the lion and bull obverse design with an incuse punch on the back. We cannot emphasize enough the rarity and outstanding quality of the current coin. In recent years there have been more of the older, heavier staters that have come to light, shifting attention to these long-overlooked light series gold staters. Learn More

  • Achaemenid Empire Silver Siglos NGC Choice Very Fine 4x2

    This Persian Silver Siglos was struck over 2,300 years ago and are very popular today.

This particular coin has a "chop mark" an ancient test cut that was done to make sure the coin was made of pure silver. Very cool, the only one available. Learn More
