    Lots of lovely high-end ancient coins for your perusal. As always, domestic shipping is included in the price, and feel free to make offers. :)

    Up for sale is a scarce ancient electrum coin. The first coins ever struck were struck out of electrum, a naturally-occurring alloy of silver and gold. This alloy was found in Pactolus River in Lydia. From this, coins of a standard weight (called a stater, or “standard”) and divisions thereof were struck for circulation ca 650 BC.

    This example is more refined than these early coins, but it still possesses a charming archaic style. It was struck in Lesbos ca 500 BC, where many of the electrum coins known today were struck.
