    1. 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.

    2. Atticus

      Atticus

      This is a rather pleasant hoard of mainly Roman coins; it has a nice mix of the rarer large coins as well as the smaller denominations. There is also a nice helping of silver coins in this hoard, we must have seen at least 30 or 40 while we were pouring the coins out on the table to take photographs, but as we don’t stage our photographs there are only a couple visible in the pictures.

      This hoard seems to have some very interesting coins in it and should prove to be a lot of fun when cleaning and attributing them. A good few coins are already showing some detail so I would say it is “over average” for a hoard of this nature.

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

    6. Hera

      Hera

      Here is a nice hoard of coins originating from the middle east, they offer a great variety of types and sizes. I would say that there is a larger than average amount of Roman Provincial coins than normally seen in Hoards from this region judging by the size of the coins.

      A good amount of smaller Roman coins as well as some Byzantine, Judean, widow’s mites, and some very large Ptolemy coins that are very scarce and often valuable at this size.

      Also there is a nice amount of Greek and Islamic coins in here with a lot of the noticeable serrated edge ones that everyone loves that often show such great detail after cleaning. All in all a really nice varied hoard with some nice looking artefacts and jewellery in it.

    7. Janus

      Janus

      This is a nice hoard 14Kg that we managed to purchase at a good price so it is offered for sale at a really competitive rate. It has some noticeable Islamic silver coins in it as well as a good solid range of Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Judean coins. Some of the coins are quite encrusted so really could be anything once you have cleaned them up.

      A fair few of the coins are already showing a fair amount of detail before cleaning and have a nice desert patina. Massive collectable variety of coins here with a few really nice looking ancient Greek coins.

    8. 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.

    9. 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.

    10. 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.

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. 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.

    14. 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.
