Any ideas on the value of a couple of NGC graded 11th Century Byzantine Empire Gold cup coins?

    I have never been able to get a good idea on the value of these. Anyone have any ideas?

    Have you tried CNG?

    No, I will probably look there tomorrow at work.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Search vcoins. Searching Ma-shops may also help but I don't recall if the dealers on there do much much with Byzantine.

    Michael VI reigned for a year. Michael VII reigned for seven, but he also had increasingly poor gold content in his coins, allowing him to strike more of them.

    Yup. According to my spectrometer, the Constantine coin is close to 22kt, and the Micheal VII is 14kt.

    After quickly checking CNG, it seems that Michael VII mostly sells for around $300. Some sell for more, some less, but that seems to be a median.

    Thanks. I have been home sick all week, and don’t have my work resources.

    Feel better soon! I can let you come to your own conclusions on the price. Your Constantine IX is a later one, struck from 1049-1053.
