      Every now and then you get to see some absolutely lovely coins, and these are them. The pictures don’t really do them justice but the vast majority of these premium coins will need very little cleaning, and in fact most of them will look pleasing and be attributable with little more than a quick soak in distilled water or some Renwax put on them.

    3. Philip-5 coins (cleaned)

      Philip-5 coins (cleaned)

      Here we have around 200 Philip and Alexander coins in premium uncleaned condition. The previous owner of this hoard has cleaned some of the coins so you can see the level of detail that will show after cleaning. They are wonderful and very collectable coins that command a premium sale value when cleaned and attributed. Unfortunately these coins were prohibitively expensive for us to acquire on a price per coin basis and the cost does not really stack up to retail in terms of weight so we need to list them by number to have a sensible price point on them that will give people the opportunity to get some of these.

      Eureka

      This is one of those hoards that you will wish you bought more of. We can honestly say it is one of the most interesting ones we have seen in the last five years. It has a wide and varied range of interesting coins in it that are in lovely uncleaned condition. It has a range of Roman coins including Radiates, Denarii, interesting Follis as well as the odd provincial mixed in with a good amount of silver Roman coins. It also has an interesting mix of Byzantine and Greek coins, including a lot of examples that we have never seen before as well as some Judean coins. Our gut feeling is that there could be some really exciting and rare coins in here, and the condition of these coins are really good. We would say that the vast majority of these coins are also premium uncleaned coins condition wise with a lot of them requiring not a lot more than a bit of wax to bring the natural beauty out before attributing them.

    5. Gallio (Cleaned)

      Gallio (Cleaned)

      These ancient Roman arrows are fantastic, they have all been sympathetically and professionally cleaned by an enthusiastic collector. They must of taken many many hours to clean so nicely yet a lot of them retain a wonderful patina.

      They range in size from about 1.5cm to some that are about 8cm long, on average they are probably around 2-4 cm each in length. These are very varied as some of them have holes in them where they would have been filled with poison, others are barbed, some have just two raised edges while others have three or four.

      These will make a fantastic display piece or accompaniment to any ancient coin collection.

    7. 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.

    8. Athena Greek Hoard

      Athena Greek Hoard

      Sold out within 24 hours.

      This is one of those hoards that rarely comes up and when it does it puts a smile on your face. It has everything going for it, firstly it is 90+% Ancient Greek coins, with just a few early Roman coins in the mix. Everyone loves Greek coins, they are so beautiful, collectable, valuable and generally far more sought after than most other coinage of the time. These are all thick and chunky coins that will be extremely exciting to clean up. Although crusty enough to offer almost a complete surprise of what lies beneath you can see some beautiful classical detail on some of them with Gods, as well as Horses, Pegasus, Griffins, and Eagles. This hoard offers extremely good prospecting opportunities to potentially uncover some rare and exciting coins when cleaned. As a guess I would say that the majority of them are very early at around 2-300 BC. Also the few noticeable Roman coins in here seem to also be nice early examples generally. I am sure these will be a very rewarding investment of both time and money as you clean them, not to mention the history and mythology coming to life right in your hands. The only regret with these coins is that this hoard is only around 7Kg. That being said we are extremely pleased to have been able to purchase it, as finding coins like this in this day and age is getting extremely difficult.

      Special Offer Save 20% whilst stocks last!

      They say variety is the spice of life, well this hoard is great as it is so varied. As a Middle Eastern hoard it gives great variety and opportunities to find Roman Greek, Islamic, Byzantine, as well as Ptolemy, Seleucid, Judean, Nabatean, and widows mites (mentioned in the bible). The reason that it is so varied is that so much of the ancient world traded in this region, as it was technically the centre of the Earth at the time. So exchange of so many currencies in a relatively small area, can lead to some of the very most interesting, rare and valuable finds from a wide range of cultures. There are a few visible silver coins, mainly Islamic, a good proportion of Roman coins, including some provincial and city coins by the looks of it. All in all an exciting range of coins and mixture of sizes across the board, right from tiny Fractional Greek to quite large Byzantine coins.

    10. Artemis Hoard

      Artemis Hoard

      This hoard offers a fantastic mix of almost exclusively earlier and larger Roman coins as well as a super selection of uncleaned classical Greek coins. I would say as a rough guess that around the mix will be in the region of 50/50 after cleaning judging by the sizes. So this not only offers potentially rare early Roman, but also very nice and extremely collectable and potentially valuable early Greek coins. They are lovely crusty coins generally, so full of surprises. As you clean the passage of thousands of years of time off of these coins, you know that you will likely be finding some super stuff such as Nike Victory coins, Hercules coins, Thunderbolt coins, along with other Gods such as Apollo and Zeus. There are also many Greek coins with pictures of horses on. The Roman coins they are generally earlier, larger and some show some premium detail before even being touched. Some of these coins will definitely prove to be rare and valuable as they are coming out of such a great hoard. It really does have the best of both worlds in his one. I would say that this hoard from a prospecting point of view is as exciting as our old “Jupiter hoard”. It also has some nice looking rings in it, as well as some unusual artefacts and ancient beads. You just know this one is going to be really interesting right from the outset. I would say this is one of those “Investment “ opportunity hoards. Irrespective of if you enjoy cleaning coins for a hobby, or to attribute them and re sell them this one will be a “premium rarity” buy and a whole lot of fun.

    11. Minerva

      Minerva

      Here is a lovely hoard of almost exclusively very large, mainly Roman Colonial and provincial coins. Hoards like this are extremely nice and very seldom come up, in fact it is only the second one I can remember us having in the last ten or so years. Many people prefer the earlier and larger coins to those of the more mixed hoards. It offers a rare but very interesting opportunity to acquire some early coins for cleaning and attributing. I think Minerva will offer a very fascinating look into the past and make for some great cleaning as a lot of them are already showing some nice detail. If you like cleaning larger and mainly Roman Colonial coins this is definitely the one for you.

      I would imagine this hoard has some great prospecting opportunities along with good investment opportunities longer term. Around ten years ago there were a lot of the larger Roman uncleaned coins coming for sale, but as time passes, they get ever more difficult to find, and most dealers break them up and generally sell them individually, or in expensive counted lots. This is one of those “must have” hoards that five years down the line you will wish you had the opportunity to buy more of. We often get asked for Hoards like this, made up of almost exclusively larger Roman coins so don’t miss your opportunity to get a piece of it.

    12. Maia

      Maia

      This is one of the most varied Hoards that I have seen in quite some time, it has some noticeable Silver coins in there (mainly Islamic). A higher than average amount of early thicker Roman, and Greek coins. As well as a very pleasing amount of Seleucid and fractional Greeks by the looks of it.

      There are some nice visible Widows mites in here, and a great mix of Byzantine and Roman coins. So all in all, a fantastically “varied hoard” with some great prospects to find some very interesting and rare coins. These highly varied hoards are always extremely popular; they offer a vast variety of coins from a major ancient trading region of the world. You really never know what kind of rare or interesting gems that you can find. Often these hoards contain coins with Zeus, Cleopatra, and other legendary figures in them. You know what they say “variety is the spice of life”. These are from a region renowned for some very rare, valuable, and interesting finds so they “ALWAYS” prove to be something a little different.

    13. Diana

      Diana

      Here we have a nice Hoard of around 16Kg, found in the Jerusalem area of the Holyland. This area was one of the most historic and heavily traded areas of the world in ancient times. It is steeped in History, and within less than 1000 years was occupied numerous amounts of times leading to one of the most diversified and varied uses of currency anywhere in the world. Unlike today where coins have a relatively short shelf life, in ancient times different coinage from different rulers were still actively used well after they had gone. The result of this means you have the opportunity in hoards like this to find some of the most interesting coinage of ancient times.

      As an example it is not unusual to find coins from Alexander the great as he conquered the Persians. Then the Judeans came under the control of the Macedonians. Then Jerusalem fell to the Ptolemaic dynasty under Ptolemy I, in 198 BC. Ptolemy V then lost Jerusalem to the Seleucids. By 63 BC then Pompey the great captured Jerusalem. After then it had a period of Roman, Byzantine, and Persian rule.

      All of the above cultures and dynasties are captured in this hoard. Each with their own story to tell, as an example Ptolemy coins are extremely collectable and often have pictures of the Gods on them such as Zeus the father of God’s. It is also not uncommon to find coins with Cleopatra on from this particular area, as well as the very collectable Seleucid coins.

    14. Ares

      Ares

      This is a great hoard of around 90+% Ancient Classical Greek coins, with a sprinkle of Roman and Byzantine by the looks of it. Everyone loves Greek classical coins, they are so beautiful, collectable, valuable and generally far more sought after than most other coinage of the time. These are all real nice thick and chunky coins that will be extremely exciting to clean up. Although crusty enough to offer almost a complete surprise of what lies beneath you can see some beautiful classical detail on some of them with Gods, as well as Horses, Pegasus, Griffins, Poseidon, and great looking Eagles. This hoard offers extremely good prospecting opportunities to potentially uncover some rare and exciting coins after being cleaned. As a guess I would say that the majority of them are very early at around 2-300 BC. Also the few noticeable Roman coins in here seem to also be nice early examples generally. I am sure these will be a very rewarding investment of both time and money as you clean them, not to mention the history and mythology coming to life right in your hands. Typically these early coins tend to clean up very well, as the base metal was very high quality to start with.

    15. Fortuna

      Fortuna

      This 11Kg Hoard is named after the goddess of fortune, it is a terrific early Roman hoard with a large number of the thick Greek coins in it as well. What is great about this hoard is that it is almost exclusively made up of either very large or extremely thick coins; it has virtually no smaller coins in it at all. The size of the coins alone in this hoard would class them as premium un cleaned by most dealers. When taking the pictures I noticed straight away that a few of the coins had the legend Caesar written on them. That would date this hoard at around 50AD for those particular coins give or take several hundred years either side of typical coin use.

      In addition to having some lovely large coins you will notice that a lot of them have a fantastic patina, and would probably respond favourably to being cleaned in distilled water or Olive oil. Historically having some visible Caesar coins in here means that you are likely to have some very interesting and potentially historic and valuable coins.
