    1. 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.

    2. Constantine

      Constantine

      This is a mainly low-grade late Roman hoard with a few Byzantine coins and the odd Greek coin mixed in. We often get asked for Roman coins at lower price points. This one fits the bill, they are certainly the cheapest coins that we have ever sold, and they are in typical uncleaned condition. Some show some promising detail so will be cleanable and attributable, but others will never clean up as a lot of late Roman coins were made of a very thin poor quality bronze. But we are sure that these are the cheapest ethically obtained late Roman coins available anywhere on the Internet at the moment. They also seem to show a far better variety than most others available on the Internet.

    3. Ajax

      Ajax

      Here we have an early Greek hoard, they are mainly made up of the chunky slightly domed coins with the odd variation as a rough guess I would say the vast majority of them will be around 200 BC . A fair few of them already show some detail, you can see some with horses on some of them as well as mythical creatures and Gods. These types of hoards are generally very popular as everyone loves Greek coins and the values tend to be a lot higher than their roman counterparts. This is due in part to the interesting subject matter and also due to the fact that they are not so common and tend to clean up better. This hoard should be very interesting to clean and attribute. Although some show some good detail a lot of them will hold onto their secrets until they have been cleaned.

      These are the cheapest silver, silver washed, and debased silver coins we have ever had for sale, most need cleaning, some are chipped but all are great value! There are Greek, Roman, and a few Byzantine coins here and they are SERIOUSLY CHEAP with 10 coins for just £99.95.

    5. Maximus

      Maximus

      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.

    6. Varro

      Varro

      This hoard consists of a good deal of Roman and Greek coins, with some larger examples of both mixed in. It is quite hard to see exactly what kind of coins could be included here as a lot of them are crusty enough to retain most of their secrets still, yet others do give a glimpse of what lies beneath. Some very nice coins here by size and weight compared to a lot of other hoards that we get.

      These unlearned coins are in typical in condition; I would say that they would be particularly suited to those people wanting to take some time to do them properly as there could well be some very interesting finds here. They have a wonderful feel in hand and just need to be cleaned to unlock the secrets.

    7. Achilles

      Achilles

      Every now and then we get some of these very sympathetically cleaned and unattributed Greek coins from a collector in Europe as he is selling off his collection. Hours and hours have been painstakingly spent cleaning these coins in a way to preserve the Patina.

      These wonderful classical Greek coins are extremely collectable and once attributed can command goods amounts of money. They have a lot of mythical pictures on them including the Trident of Poseidon, wonderful Horses and Gods like Zeus.

      These coins are always a real treat to own and attribute and tend to always sell quickly.

    8. Aurora

      Aurora

      This is the best hoard that we have seen in quite some time for a number of reasons. As it is from central Europe it has a great mix of coins in it. I would say that around 90% are Roman including some provincials with the remainder being Greek.

      In terms of a breakdown of this hoard it has a healthy concentration of larger coins with a lot of them showing some promising detail. A lot of the smaller coins here are approaching premium uncleaned condition with a good amount of detail already showing. I would say that a well over average amount of these smaller coins would clean up. After running a handful under the tap you could see promising details on well over half of them as the top layers of dirt rinsed off.

      This hoard has one of the highest concentrations of Roman Silver coins, or Silver washed coins in it that I can ever remember seeing. They are mainly Roman, but I did also notice a few Greek ones so it is quite unusual in that regard as Greek Silver coins can be fairly valuable.

      My overall impression of this hoard is very good for cleaning; it has a good variety of coins in a range of sizes in over average condition. The added benefit of the higher amounts of Roman silver coins is especially pleasing. It should prove to be very interesting to clean, with some of the coins starting to show detail with just a rinse in water.

    9. Saxa Silver coins

      Saxa Silver coins

      Here we have an ethically obtained collection of unsorted and unattributed Silver coins. Most of these will require cleaning. In terms of the coins themselves most of them are Roman, however there does appear to be the odd Greek and Byzantine silver coin also.

    10. Theseus

      Theseus

      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.

    11. Bali

      Bali

      This is a better than average hoard from Jerusalem as it has a good amount of coins that already have some detail showing. These hoards historically are some of most interesting and varied around. Apart from some interesting coins this hoard has a variety of interesting hoard artefact’s including some Rings and Arrows along with some other curious objects. There also seems to be a few silver coins in here but they are mainly Islamic by the looks of it.

      Coin wise it shows some nice Greek, Roman, Seleucid, Islamic and Byzantine that is characteristic for coins that were traded in the centre of the 'ancient world'.

      From previous experience these hoards can yield very rare coins that were often traded in the Holyland. The ground conditions in the region are favourable for preservation although it should be noted that some of the coins in the region were in circulation for very long periods of time.

    12. Arcas

      Arcas

      This is a collection of really wonderful unattributed cleaned Greek coins from a collector in Europe, and is certainly some of the nicest Greek coins that we have ever seen. They have been meticulously and painstakingly cleaned to an exceptionally high standard. Cleaning coins to this level is something that is not easy to do and extremely time consuming as most of them retain a wonderful patina.

      Among these unattributed coins are some great examples of the ancient Greek coinage. There is a wide variety and range of coins here that will prove to be really interesting and often valuable once attributed.

      When we have had these coins from the same collector in the past they have always sold really well with the same customers purchasing again and again.

    13. Pan

      Pan

      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.

    14. Alexander

      Alexander

      This is without question one of the nicest hoards that we have ever had the pleasure of offering for sale. This complete hoard of 99 Alexander the Great coins are from around 300BC and were originally from a long-standing German collection. They all show fantastic detail even in their current state, and share a wonderful patina.

      Owning this hoard of coins is a very rare opportunity, and I can say with almost complete certainty there will never be another opportunity to purchase such a historic and lovely hoard of Greek coins.

      The obverse of the coins has a few different designs on including Horses, Bows, and other designs. These can be very sought after and rare coins and after attribution and carful cleaning (if you really want to) will be a great investment.

      We normally sell hoards broken down by weight but on this occasion we can only offer the complete hoard for sale, as it would be too much of a shame to split it. It is priced very conservatively for such a wonderful hoard of coins in such strong condition.

      A real once in a lifetime purchase!!! Complete hoard of coins £2500.

    15. Hypnos

      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.
