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 Extremely Fine 4x3

    This Lydian full silver stater was issued by King Croesus sometime around 560 B.C and has been preserved far better than most over the past 2,600 years. It is known to be the first true silver coinage ever issued and is very desirable as a result, particularly the largest denomination of the series, the full stater. The obverse shows an image of a lion and bull, representing strength and fertility. The reverse employs a double-incuse punch that happened when the coin was struck so long ago. The basal value for a Full Silver Stater is $5,000 so we feel the premium for this example is fully justifiable. The silver staters of Croesus were issued in six different sizes ranging from a full stater down to a tiny 1/24th stater. Coin pictured is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More
