Picture of Gallienus Gazelle Bronze Antoninianus Very Fine

Gallienus Gazelle Bronze Antoninianus Very Fine

Gallienus ruled as sole emperor from A.D. 260-268 during one of the most difficult times in the history of the empire. Not only was the empire facing natural disasters and invasions on all sides but he had to face at least eight rebellions from his own governors and generals! He issued a fantastic group of bronze Antoninianus coins to honour the Gods, asking for their protection against these troubles. Though made in Europe, these coins were used in Britain and are a large part of the Mildenhall Hoard in the British Museum. Depicted on these coins are a variety of animals, some real and some mythical, each linked to one of the Roman deities. This series is known as the 'Gallienus Zoo Coins' and make a great set to try to complete. From this series, we offer here the Gazelle, identified as different to the antelope by the numbers ‘XI’ or ‘XII’ underneath and the straight horns. These are designed to honour Diana, the sister of Apollo and the goddess of the hunt. This is likely to bring luck to hunting and like her brother, for plagues and disease. The coins are at least Very Fine but because of the chaos at the time remember they may be a little weakly struck. As always the first to order will get the best. This is the last to complete the set we have available!

2020_Silver_Krugerrand_BU_Obv

South Africa, 2020 Silver Krugerrand BU

Because of the pandemic, mints all over the world had to reduce production and thus the number of coins they issued. The first coins to be cut were the silver bullion coins and South Africa was no exception. At one point dealers wanted £45 each for a 2020 South Africa silver Kruger plus VAT from us! We did what any smart company would do, we said NO. We would wait till the price became more realistic. Now it has! These Brilliant Uncirculated coins which contain one ounce of pure silver, could well end up being the key date of the series. We have them at what we think is a fair price and a warning they could well turn out to be a key date. Supplies are very limited.
