Achaemenid Coins

Coinage of the Achaemenid Empire was struck in gold and silver and can be broken down into four different design types. Type 1 was struck in silver only and is very rare in any condition. Type 2 was struck in both gold and silver and has the Hero-King with a drawn bow. Type 3 was struck in both metals and has the King with a bow and spear. Type 4 was struck in both metals and has the King with a bow and knife.

This particular coin has a "chop mark" an ancient test cut that was done to make sure the coin was made of pure silver. Very cool, the only one available. Learn More

  • Achaemenid Gold Daric NGC MS Star 5x5

    This is a stunning, mint state gold Daric dating back around 2,400 years. It is struck of bright yellow gold and because of its incredible eye appeal has been awarded the Star designation by NGC Ancients. Because of a hoard of gold darics found sometime last year, prices on this material are literally one-half of where they were. This group of coins is being absorbed by the market and we expect prices to head back to more normalized levels. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive and this is a "Type 3" gold daric depicting the Persian Hero King wielding a bow/arrow along with a spear. Learn More
