Coinage in the Greek World

Two giants of the ancient Greek coin world, Ian Carradice and Martin J. Price, wrote this book. Carradice ordered the previously chaotic Persian Siglos into time periods while Martin J. Price did the same for Alexander the Great’s empire, they came together to write this triumph! Through 154 pages and nearly 300 pictures find out how the coins we still use today were invented by the Ancient Greeks and why the designs were so important from the 7th Century B.C. to when the Romans came to dominate in the 1st Century B.C.

These Byzantine bronze Follis are the first coins to portray Jesus Christ. They were issued in the 10th or 11th Century AD and have a portrait of Christ on one side and either a cross or lettering on the other. These coins are individually struck one at a time by hand, so the designs and strikes will differ. Here we offer these coins in Fine grade; they have a lot of detail. Not many are left, get one this Christmas as you might not get the chance to get one next Christmas...
