When people think of “old coins” chances are that what comes to mind is the change in that old jar in the attic or grandpa's silver dollars. But for something truly impressive to add to your collection nothing beats owning a handmade coin from thousands of years ago!
Our uncleaned coins come exactly as they were found in Europe still caked in hardened dirt so that you can have the fun of lovingly restoring these antiquities. For your reward YOU will be the first to see the coin as the last Roman who owned it.
You can't help but make an instant connection with our long ago ancestors. Who could have lost this coin? A Roman soldier, a luckless citizen, a slave? What could have been bought with it?
And for every question only your imagination for answers! Experience, too, coins from the even older time of the Greeks, the Middle Ages or obscure civilizations long left to the dustbin of history!
