Sixth day of the Auction 14 – Ancient coins

Published by RDA on

We have passed the halfway point of our 14th auction. Today we will continue the auction of foreign coins, and tomorrow we invite you to a feast for lovers of ancient coinage. Today and tomorrow we start from 5 p.m., of course. What about antiquity? First of all, a beautiful mint piece of the solid of Theodosius II (443-460 AD). If we look at it, it is hard to believe how such a coin could have survived in mint condition for so many centuries. Impossible? Nothing could be further from the truth.

We also cannot miss a classic of ancient coinage, the most media-friendly and recognizable coin of that time – the Athenian tetradrachm, also known as the “owl”. And the state of preservation? A dream.
