Ancient Coins


There has never been a better time to buy ancient coins or to begin an ancient coin collection. Ancient coins are one of the fastest growing areas of coin collecting and can be enjoyed on almost any budget. This fascinating hobby has taken off since Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), the largest coin grading service in the world, has put universal coin grading standards in place that mean collectors don't have to worry about the authenticity or grade of a coin since it's clearly stated on the certified coin holder. In short, the fear factor of buying ancient coins has been removed.
 
Increasingly collectors are discovering that they can own these historic artifacts and miniature works of art that are over 2000 years old for prices comparable to modern issue mass-produced coins. While some ancient coins are rare, many are very common and can be acquired for under $100.00, because the most famous cities and rulers of the ancient world struck coins in great quantities. 
 
This page features some popular ancient coins that have made an impression on us and are worth highlighting.
