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.

  • Croesus Silver Full Stater NGC Choice Extremely Fine 5x3

    The first silver coin ever struck in human history nearly 2,600 years ago, this stunning full silver stater is one of the finest we've encountered. Issued in Lydia, or modern-day Turkey, it depicts the lion and bull design on the front, symbolizing strength and virility. Worn, unattractive examples trade for $5-$6,000 minimum, so we believe the premium on this high-end example is totally justifiable. Great coin for the money and without a doubt, museum quality in all regards. Learn More

  • Mithridates II Silver Drachm NGC Choice VF

    Mithridates II ruled from 121-91 B.C. and these intricate silver drachms are much rarer than their price implies.

The obverse is incredibly detailed for the assigned grade and depicts a bust of Mithridates II facing left while the reverse is very finely engraved with several different letters and symbols, with the center showing Arsaces I holding a bow. These are great coins for the price and we only have a few available. Learn More

  • Croesus Silver Full Stater NGC Choice Very Fine Star 5x5

    Flashy example of the first silver coin ever struck in human history around 560 B.C.!

The obverse design employs a lion and bull facing each other, thought to represent strength and virility. The reverse of the coin has a double-incuse punch. The stater is the largest size of the coins issued under Croesus and given the fact these are nearly 2,600 years old, this coin has remarkable eye appeal for the assigned grade.
