GALLERY 3, ANCIENT FOREIGN COINS
There will be times when this page is empty if I have no inventory to show at the time. My collection is extremely fluid and again, if you have an interest in any item on any page, be sure to contact us using the contact page of just call me.
I don't seem to be able to keep foreign coins in inventory very long. So some special ones like the first 6 should be looked at seriously being they start at over 2500 years old from the 5th & 6th Century BC.
The history of ancient Greek coinage can be divided into four periods, the Archaic, the Classical, the Hellenistic and the Roman. The Archaic period extends from the introduction of coinage to the Greek world during the 7th century BC until the Persian Wars in about 480 BC. The Classical period then began and lasted until the conquests of Alexander the Great in about 330 BC, which began the Hellenistic period, extending until the Roman absorption of the Greek world in the 1st century BC. The Greek cities continued to produce their own coins for several more centuries under Roman rule. The coins produced during this period are called Roman provincial coins or Greek Imperial Coins
The study of Greek coins and knowledge thereof,
One more Greek coin - pendant.
I sent this one to NGC for verification that it is authentic, and it came back so. I asked them not to encapsulate it because I wanted to wear it and to be sure it was a real Greek coin. It is, from c.130 AD. $590.00 (see the owl on the Rev)
That's all the ancient Greek coins for now. For more ancient coins go to Gallery 6 for there are many different countries represented
For Treasure coins, go to Gallery 7
Japanese ancients Below is a nice one. Want a different one, just contact me with details. Remember, these are just samples.
There will be soon educational information on each of the sectors and galleries, but that is going to be slow to come with the holidays and 3 coin shows in January 2020, so please be patient. [questions anytime of course]
