Over 2,000 Years of History in the Palm of Your Hand

By Brian Zweig

It always amazes us to see the vigor and excitement with which ancient coins are traded by buyers from all walks of life and from every part of the globe. From Tokyo to Dubai, and Zurich to Los Angeles, ancient coins are traded on an international scale. The 46th New York International Numismatic Convention was a perfect example of this phenomenon. Held just two weeks ago in New York City, the convention was home to over 115 American and international world and ancient coin dealers. Between the very active trading floor and multiple auctions consisting of nine prominent auction houses, our ancient coin buyers acquired rarities that meet our highest standards, which means they must include all of the following traits:

  • Scarce—Many ancient coins are found in hoards, sometimes thousands of pieces. These coins make incredible entry points and inspire even a novice buyer. However, the rarities we offer are rarely found in hoards and are coins that command international attention at every appearance.
  • High Grade—In addition to an overall grade that addresses whether a coin is circulated or uncirculated, ancient coins are graded for their strike and surface condition, which are evaluated on two conditions: 1) How well was it struck? and 2) How well have the surfaces survived the thousands of years since the coin was struck?
  • NGC-certified—When you buy a certified ancient coin, you avoid “problem coins” that were previously mounted in jewelry, repaired, intentionally scratched, or heavily cleaned.
  • Historically Significant—Our strategy has always been to focus on coins struck during the most important historical moments in the Western world. Ancient coins are works of art that bring these moments alive (in precious metal), and just as the most famous Renaissance painters command the highest bid, your coins should appeal to the largest pool of prospective buyers.

Our first selection of ancient coins for 2018 meets all of the above requirements, and we are proud to have assembled six tremendous examples of some of the most iconic, world-class rarities in the marketplace.
