Ancient Roman Coins
Coins of ancient Rome were coined from gold, silver, bronze and copper in wide variety. Roman currency offers many choices to the collector due to the changes in form, domination, composition and ruler/Caesar from Republic to Imperial times.
Ancient Greek Coins
Coins of ancient Greece were mainly made out of gold, silver, or electrum and fall into 3 periods: Archaic; Classical; and Hellenistic. Ancient Greek coins primarily consist of the drachm and were handmade not machined as are modern coinage.
Ancient Byzantine Coins
Ancient Byzantine Coins, gold solidus and the bronze nummi, began with the monetary reform of Anastasius, who reformed the late Roman Empire coinage system. The nummus was an extremely small because a large number of them were required even for any transaction.
Ancient World Coins
In addition to Roman & Greek coins, we also occasionally offer ancient Chinese coins, ancient Israel or Egypt coins and other types of ancient currency. If you have an ancient coin you would like to sell, drop by the Coin Shop and let's talk about ancient coins.

There is a far greater reward in collecting ancient Greek coins or ancient Roman coins than any potential monetary value as collectibles. Coins are an integral part of that way of living and their culture. It a tangible piece of history and a witness to the past. All of these ancient gold, silver & copper coins were produced in a limited quantity, never to be made again. Many of these coins are scarce or very rare and are sought after by museums and private collectors alike. The fact that fewer coins were minted in ancient times, as most coins were produced by hand, coupled with the enormous history associated with old, ancient coins, makes them much more rare and valuable than contemporary coins.

It was common place that Greek and Roman citizens would bury their coins for safekeeping, they did not have the safety net of our modern banking system for keeping their valuables safe. Soldiers and citizens would often buried their coins before battle, and as people were driven from their lands or worse, the coins would remain buried for hundreds or even thousands of years.
