    2. Amisos

      Amisos

      This is without question one of the nicest hoards that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. The detail even before cleaning is striking with well over 90% of the coins being instantly attributable in their current state. Pontos is often considered the home of the Amazons.

      The first travels of Greek merchants and adventurers to the Pontian region occurred probably from around 1000 BC, whereas their settlements would become steady and solidified cities only by the 8th and 7th centuries BC as archaeological findings document. This fits in well with a foundation date of 731 BC as reported by Eusebius of Caesarea for Sinope, perhaps the most ancient of the Greek Colonies in what was later to be called Pontus.[12] The epical narratives related to the travels of Jason and the Argonauts to Colchis, the tales of Heracles' navigating the Black Sea and Odysseus' wanderings into the land of the Cimmerians, as well as the myth of Zeus constraining Prometheus to the Caucasus mountains as a punishment for his outwitting the Gods.

    3. Hebron

      Hebron

      This is a Holy land hoard that was found in Israel, hoards from this region are very interesting as they offer such a wide variety of coins and history. This is due to the numerous wars and occupation in the region combined with it being a major trading location. Unlike the more traditional European hoards the range and size of the coins vary considerably. They start at an extremely small size as often they include fractional Greek coins and on the other side of the scale can include very large coins including Byzantine Follis or Ptolemy coins. There are certainly among the most varied hoards ever found and can often contain some extremely interesting and valuable coins from a wide range of civilisations and cultures.

    4. 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.

      Here we have some lovely Byzantine Lead crosses, a large variety of different shapes and sizes. Some are extremely ornate and others are more simplistic symbols. These crosses are extremely collectable and make a great addition to any collection or display.

      These are absolutely beautiful mainly Roman and Greek silver coins purchased from a premium collection in Europe. We are very excited about being able to exclusively offer them. The detail and condition on them is generally great. They are all unattributed and like other lots of Silver coins that we have sold previously so there may be some rare ones available.

    7. Helios

      Helios

      Helios is mainly made up of larger and thicker Roman Provincial coins. It will offer a fascinating look into collecting these wonderful coins. Many of them adorn wonderful images including, Battles, and Forts etc.

      This hoard measures in at around 18Kg, everyone recognises purchasing larger uncleaned Roman coins has become increasingly more difficult over the last few years. The price and, and collectability of these kind of larger coins rise steadily in excess of their smaller counterparts.

      A lot of these already offer some tantalising detail before cleaning and could probably be considered as an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase such coins. Generally in size they are at last the size of a Roman follis but with a great thickness to them as well that comes with these nice early coins.

      Cleaning wise we imagine that generally results should be quite good as a lot of them show some detail already and the alloy and thickness of these early coins lends itself well to the preservation of time. It should however be noted though that these kinds of coins were often circulated for centuries so although they might clean up well could have been worn through period use.

    8. 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.

    9. Mercury Hoard

      Mercury Hoard

      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. Mars hoard

      Mars hoard

      Another cleaned collection of coins that we took in part exchange from one of our regular customers who enjoys cleaning them, but not attributing them as part of his hobby. Over many years he meticulously cleaned and collected these man coins, a lot of them are really thick and large older provincial coins with great patinas. They all offer good levels of detail and will all be attributable. Some with really interesting pictures and legend on, some great early coins here that could be fairly valuable if sold separately and attributed.

    11. Vesta Hoard

      Vesta Hoard

      This hoard is mainly made up of later Roman coins, we often get asked for hoards containing mainly Roman coins and this hoard certainly fits the bill on that note. There is a small amount of silver coins visible and a few silvered later Roman coins. I would say that the majority of these coins are around 2-300AD. Compared to other hoards that we have for sale from the middle east they are generally slightly larger Roman Coins on the whole although there are still some tiny coins included in them. You can see the odd other type of coin including Byzantine, and Islamic but I would estimate that well over 90% of these coins are late Roman. Some have visable legend on them, and some have camp gates, and other easily identified Roman characteristics.

    12. Hades Byzantine cup coins

      Hades Byzantine cup coins

      This is a really interesting hoard made up exclusively of Byzantine cup coins. They date from around 11th century and are very collectable. This shape of coinage was far harder to strike than normal flat coins and was issued up until around the 14th century. These will make for fantastic cleaning and numbers of them are still stuck together in piles where they lay undisturbed until discovery. They offer extremely good value for money and are coins that when cleaned have a good value to them. This hoard is entirely made up of these very interesting yet collectable coins.

    13. Venus Hoard

      Venus Hoard

      This is a very pleasant and varied Hoard, when I was taking the pictures I was drawn to a few very nice ancient classical Greek coins that were noticeable in it. In terms of composition I would say that it represent a great ancient variety of coins as well as a slightly over average detail on them before cleaning.
