Ancient Bronze Coin of Carthage VG-Fine

Carthage, a powerful Phoenician city-state, thrived from 650 to 146 B.C, standing out for its maritime excellence and dominance in Western Mediterranean trade. Under skilled leaders like Hamilcar Barca and his son the renowned Hannibal, Carthage expanded its influence across North Africa. Its prosperity stoked conflicts, laying the groundwork for the legendary struggles against Rome in the Punic Wars. These AE16 coins from 400-350 BC, portray the Goddess Tanit on the obverse and a right-standing horse with a palm tree behind on the reverse which is synonymous with the coinage of the region as the horse was a symbol of Baal Hammon, the chief god of Carthage. They are in “VG - fine” grade.

Crusader States, Antioch, Bohemond III (1163 -1201), Denier

The First Crusade was declared in 1095 by Pope Urban II and its objective was to provide military support to Byzantine Emperor Alexios I against the Seljuk Turks, as well as reclaiming the "Holy Land" from Muslim rule. The Crusades started around 1095 and continued for nearly 200 years, during that time four different Crusades were made to retake Jerusalem. The Crusades in the Middle East ended when the city of Acre fell in 1291. These silver deniers or pennies were issued in the name of King Bohemond III (1163-1201), who in the summer of 1191, alongside Guy de Lusignan met Richard of England (Lion Heart) during the siege of Acre. Richard was part of the Third Crusade (1189–1192), an attempt by three European monarchs (including Richard of England) to reconquer the Holy Land from Saladin. The coins on offer have a helmeted Crusader Knight on one side wearing chain-mail and were minted in Antioch (modern-day Turkey) which was captured in 1098 during the First Crusade. The legends read BOAMVNDVS on the obverse and ANTIOCHIA on the reverse and they grade Good Very Fine. These coins are now over 800 years old!

Victoria Young Head Crown Very Fine_obv

Victoria, Crown (Young Head) Very Fine

This Sterling Silver Crown has the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and a crowned shield on the other side. Because there was a 40-year gap between the last Young Head Crown and the first Jubilee Head Crown, the Young Head Crowns generally come quite well used however, the coins on offer are in Very Fine condition a grade we haven’t been able to offer for a while. Even now the number we have is extremely limited...
