A few pretty ancients I'd love to hold one day


Recommended Posts

I'm pretty uneducated in the language of ancient coin collecting. But Heritage has an auction coming up that has some gorgeous coins listed. Here are a few of them:

I love both engravings. They are crisp and nearly perfect


Gold? Gorgeous color.


I love this obverse. Gold?


The one thing about these coins I don't like - they probably were in a stash or a hoard and never circulated. They may have been the centerpiece of a Renaissance collection in Rome or Florence but they never transferred between ancient Roman merchant hands.
