    1. Plutus Hoard

      Plutus Hoard

      Unclean and unsorted Roman coins from a completely untouched 14 Kg Hoard that I have affectionately named the Plutus Hoard located in the UK. Hoards of this variety and quality rarely become available to buy any more. This is a very special hoard to buy from and I am not sure when or if there will be another like this one.

      Hypnos

      This is a hoard that contains a good percentage of classical Greek coins depicting ancient Gods, creatures and horses coins along with some interesting earlier Roman and Persian coins. A lot of the coins are reasonably encrusted at the moment but being earlier thicker coins they will generally take well to cleaning because the bronze used in the manufacturing process was far superior to that of a lot of later coins. With a bit of patience these will make for some very interesting cleaning and attributing that could potentially lead to some exciting finds. There is also a variety of artefacts within this hoard including a few rings, brooches and miscellaneous items.

    3. White's Spectra VX3

      White's Spectra VX3

      The VX3 combines the premier performance of the Spectra V3i with the turn-on-and-go simplicity of the Coinmaster line of metal detector.

      This top-of-the-line metal detector is as easy to use as an ATM with 8 preset hunting programs. You’ll be ready to discover coins, jewelry, gold, silver, and relics. Take it to the shore with a specialized beach mode.

      Customization continues with 3 frequencies optimized for different targets: 2.5 kHz, 7.5 kHz, and 22.5 kHz.

      When you come across a target, the SpectraGraph Target Signature shows on the VX3’s high-resolution color display, helping you decide whether the find is worth digging up.

      The VX3 is ready to use with White’s SpectraSound wireless headphones. For traditional audio identification, choose from four modes of discrimination and optional tone ID with 191 different sounds.

      There are essential settings for you to optionally adjust, but the Spectra VX3 is all about making treasure finding easy for every hunter — detecting targets with performance worthy of the Spectra name.

    4. Olympia

      Olympia

      This is a mainly Greek hoard with some interesting earlier Roman coins in it. Everyone always loves cleaning Greek coins as they often contain mythical creatures and can often prove to be very interesting and more valuable than their Roman counterparts. We believe that there should be some very interesting coins contained in this hoard. It has a good feel to it and a few that are already showing detail are ones that we have never seen before.

      If you are looking for something with some real variety and rarity that is mainly Greek then we think that this hoard should not disappoint.

      Here we have a Middle Eastern hoard that has influences from Greece, the early Roman Empire as well as some Byzantine and possibly Islamic coins in it. The vast majority of these coins are very large for a Middle Eastern hoard. Some are showing some detail already and should prove to be interesting coins. The few smaller coins tend to be the earlier ones as well. I have only noticed one or two smaller Roman silver coins in here but they did seem to have nice detail on them. We always struggle to get earlier hoards mainly made up of larger coins from this region, but when they come up they are quite interesting and varied.

      Here are some great value unattributed Roman and Greek silver coins that came from a collection in Europe. All of them are attributable, but some show some signs of use so they are a slightly lower grade than our premium ones that we have for sale. That being said they are a really interesting lot of Silver coins for a number of reasons. Firstly a lot of these coins are far earlier silver coins than we normally see, and secondly despite some of them showing some wear there are some extremely collectable and valuable coins here. I attributed a few coins and they included a L Papius Serrate, AR Denarius, Poblicius Q.F . Serrate Denarius, Titurius L. F Sabinus, and a Silver Drachm of Apollonia with Cow and calf. These are fantastic value for money and would certainly generate a nice return if you were to attribute them and sell them separately.

      Here we have an interesting mix of very large mainly Roman coins as well as a lot of the classical Greek coins that everyone loves to collect.

      This hoard of coins should prove to be a very interesting clean as a lot of them have yet to give any indication of what lies beneath. These earlier coins especially the Greek do tend to end up retaining good detail under the crust after cleaning as the quality of the metal used was so good. In terms of cleaning up these large Roman they can be very rewarding but often they can be fairly worn due to a long life span while in circulation. The only way to tell will be to see how they come up.

      Apart from having to pay a 'kings ransom' for this hoard because of the quality and the fact it has some silver in it, it is everything that we had hoped for. Without question this is the very best late Roman hoard that we have EVER had. A far higher percentage of the coins than normal carry good starting detail, some are unquestionable premium in terms of uncleaned quality. A great deal of these coins will require very little cleaning, if at all in some cases. And you certainly get the feeling that even the crustier ones should also clean up given a little patience.

      There is also a few visible silver and silvered coins to be found in here, that just add to the excitement. It is a very rare thing to see late Roman hoards come up that are so nice off the bat. Not sure if we will ever get another one that is so nice, if you like cleaning more premium quality later Roman coins then this is the one for you.

      Here we have some crustier lower grade Greek coins that will prove to be a bit more challenging to clean than normal. Greek coins do tend to clean up well as long as you persist with them; some of the coins here show some detail but the majority of them will take a fair bit of cleaning before they start to show the fruits of your labour but priced accordingly.

      On the plus side because these coins are on the crustier side it really does mean that there could be almost anything in here.

      This is a great mainly Greek hoard; it is very dusty but even after a simple rinse under the tap you can see that a lot of them already show good detail with no effort at all. I would think that the vast majority of these coins will clean up really well given some time. And certainly just a few days in distilled water will start to show some great results judging by the ones we rinsed off here.

      Everyone loves Greek coins; they are rarer and more collectable than their Roman counterparts and often because of the better alloys used they tend to clean up showing a greater level of detail.

      All of these coins are nice and chunky as you would expect from earlier Greek coins.

      Undoubtedly these coins will make really interesting cleaning and attribution. We did not want to give them all a rinse before taking the pictures to get the dust and loose dirt off so it really will be a surprise as to what is in here.

    12. Agron

      Agron

      Agron is a predominantly later Roman hoard with a very small number of other coins mixed in.

      I would think this hoard dates from around 250Ad as the bulk of the coins seem to be from this period judging by the dimension. You will also find the odd earlier and larger coins in here that were still in use at the time. Size wise the coins range from about 6mm to about 25mm with the average size being around 15mm that was very typical for the period in question.

      There also seems to be some fairly interesting hoard finds with some beads, parts of brooches and rings as well as other unidentified artefacts in it.

      So if you are interested in purchasing mainly later Roman coins this is the hoard for you. These later coins offer great value for money as later Roman production techniques meant that the coins were lighter than their earlier counterparts. This means that on average this hoard should yield around 530 coins per Kg based on our sample.

      Here is a nice and early hoard of larger Roman coins mixed in with some chunky early Greek ones. It is the cheapest hoard like this we have been able to offer in recent years as we managed to negotiate a favourable purchase price on it. There are none of the later Roman small coins in this hoard. It is a nice early hoard of coins!

      These kinds of hoards can be very rewarding as they are fairly crusty coins but contain a lot of the rarer earlier Roman and Greek coins. Greek coins are far more sought after than Roman as the upside can generally be a lot higher value wise.

      On the Greek side, there appears to be some nice BC coins in here depicted by the ancient Gods that are visible on them. You can see the odd coin with Zeus on, or the fork of Poseidon, as well as Nike and Pegasus, as well as pictures of Crabs and Horses.

      On the Roman side I noticed a few large coins on with SC on so these coins are also more likely BC, or maybe just AD.

    14. Quintus

      Quintus

      This hoard is fantastic, it is the best one we have seen in a very long time. Probably since we had the fantastic Jupiter hoard a year or two ago. It has a great mix of larger Roman coins as well as some great looking Greek coins. Even uncleaned a lot of these coins would rate as being in fine condition. Without question this hoard is a true treasure trove, we can only imagine what treasures are to be found in here. Everything in here has a lot of potential value wise and everything in here will be really interesting to clean. A few nice Rings and artefacts can also to be found in this hoard. Most of these coins are either very early, or extremely interesting Greek or Large Roman coins. Many of them have fantastic detail prior to cleaning. There are no small thin coins in this hoard everything in here will prove to be collectable after cleaning.

      Also you will see we have taken a picture of some of the crustier coins that are still stuck together in different sizes and clumps. This is a great indication that these coins have been together for a long period of time. These mineralised clumps of coins are often found at the very bottom of a hoard are very collectable in there own right.

    15. Hieron

      Hieron

      This is without question one of the nicest hoards of coins, if not the nicest hoard that we have ever had the pleasure of seeing, weighing in at just under 6KG. All of the coins in this spectacular hoard are exactly the same. They are ALL Hieron II from 274-216 BC, Head of Poseidon left with Trident and dolphins at the sides. Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian deities of the pantheon in Greek mythology being "God of the Sea".

      From a historical point of view these are wonderful, from an investment point of view they are fantastic! If you have a good look around at the prices of these coins in F/VF condition you will see that these are fantastic value for money even at these trade prices..

      As you can see from the pictures the detail of these coins is striking and there is no doubt in my mind that most will clean up to be F/VF. This hoard of coins is so nice I suspect in fact that they might have had some very light cleaning or preservative applied prior to us purchasing them. As you can see all the Patina is intact so IF they have had a light clean it has been done wonderfully and leaves further scope for cleaning on the more encrusted coins.

      Well as they say a "picture tells a thousand words" definitely not one to miss out on.
