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.

  • Achaemenid Gold Daric Type III NGC Choice About Uncirculated 4X5

    Extremely high quality, inexpensive example of a near-mint condition "type 3" gold Daric depicting the Hero-King advancing with bow and spear. The reverse has an incuse punch that occurred when the coin was struck so long ago. Very nice gold coloration with original surfaces. It's hard to beat the pricing on these 2,400+ year old ancient gold coins -- this is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More

  • Mithridates II Silver Drachm NGC Choice XF

    Mithridates II ruled from 121-91 B.C. and these intricate silver drachms are much rarer than their price implies. In fact, we have never handled them before this current offering in any condition. Mithridates considered himself the "king of kings" and the Parthian empire reached its greatest during his rule. 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 in Choice Extremely Fine condition. Learn More
