AD 212 - 217
Collecting Ancient Coins
Numismatics became one of man's earliest hobbies. Patricians of the Roman Empire as well as Renaissance figures such a Copernicus and Michaelangelo were avid collectors of Ancient coins.
Today, this wonderful hobby of collecting Ancient Greek coins or perhaps Ancient Roman coins, is not restricted only to the wealthy or influential - but too practically everyone! Coins of beauty and historical interest can be acquired at very modest cost. Some Ancient coins such as the lepton, which is often called a mite, are mentioned in scriptural passages (the widow's mite) and have a strong Biblical significance.
Traditionally rare coins have been an excellent source of aesthetic, historical, and financial value. In more modern times because of economic instability and monetary deterioration, however, more attention is now being focused on the investment potential of the coin collecting hobby.
Our selection of Ancient coins listed below is high quality and historically significant. Each coin is unconditionally guaranteed to be as described and and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The dies for all Ancient coins were hand produced at various Mints. Because of this it is not uncommon to have variances in the design as well as possibly a totally different reverse designs on the same type obverse.
All coins are in a protective, deluxe Vinyl, Presentation Folder.
This is a great way to collect and a great gift for any coin collector on your gift list!
