Our upcoming Ancient and World Collectors Choice Online (CCO) Auction will feature a rather large selection of interesting coins from the ancient world, including Greek, Roman, and Byzantine types. These treasures are almost always much more obtainable than their modern, mass-produced, machine struck brethren and offer some rather high grades and states of preservation with respect to their immense age. For example, a Koson gold Stater from the middle of the first century B.C. and graded by NGC as MS, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 4/5 is estimated at $1,000-1,500. Meanwhile, an exceptional silver Tetradrachm featuring a detailed and expressive bust of Septimius Severus, dating to A.D. 205-211 and graded by NGC as NGC Ch AU★, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 5/5, is estimated at $300-500. Displaying not just one bust, but two, a lustrous and flashy gold Solidus of Constans II and son Constantine IV, struck between A.D. 662-667 and graded by NGC as NGC Ch AU, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 4/5, is estimated at just $500-700. No matter one’s budget or collecting focus, ancients such as these provide a great chance for exploration around the Mediterranean and across nearly two millennia. Look for these highlights, along with the rest of this large and expansive auction, coming to our website soon!
