    Yep, just happen to have one. Not even sure when or why I bought it...

    I don't own any coins from Armenia. Yours look interesting. That time period I find quite interesting.

    Glad you like. They are from the "Crusader Era" little bits of history to me. :smile

    I really want me one of those ancient Armenia tetradrachms for the 1st century BC. Rare and very expensive.

    Same Anoob...

    And maybe some from a bit later (first century AD is very interesting too)

    Armenian rulers had to walk a very fine line between Parthia and Rome...

    Any bad misstep would cause them to lose their throne and could start a civil war.

    This thread reminds me of uploading a few Armenia coins that I have taken a while ago.

    Nevertheless, here are three tough pattern coins struck in Leningrad mint.




    Mintage is rumored to be less than 2,000 each.
