    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

      Magnus

      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.

      Minimus

      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.

    8. 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.

    9. 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.

    10. 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.

    11. Turnes

      Turnes

      This is an absolutely lovely late Roman hoard; if you are looking for almost entirely premium condition coins then this is the one for you. All the coins have a lovely patina and as you can see virtually every coin already shows wonderful detail prior to cleaning. This hoard has been extremely well preserved as a lot of late Roman coins did not last the test of time very well due to the thickness of the coins and often unfavourable ground conditions.

      In honesty most of the coins will need no cleaning at all, or only very minor cleaning. Certainly I would recommend nothing more than distilled water on most of these or simply a bit of wax. Getting uncleaned premiums like this is almost impossible as they are so strong condition wise any normal dealer would simply sell them separately as they will be worth a lot more money.

      Have a look at the few coins that have simply had wax put on them, these took literally two minutes to do and have not even been in distilled water. These will be great fun to clean and attribute.

    12. 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.

    13. 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.

    14. 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.

    15. 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.
