New Stock June (Ancient Coins)

I had a really good look at our website and decided that there were not enough coins for our online collectors. To be honest, all ancient coins have been selling quite well since the pandemic started, and with the shop now open and visitors to the British Museum back again, I've had to allocate more coins to the shop. That's why the ancient coin uploads have not been as regular as I would like them to be.

But I know that many of you because of Covid regulations or simply due to the distance between us will not be able to visit our shop any time soon, and it would be unfair for you to miss out on our coins, just because you cannot come and visit. So the coins that follow are for you.

Subscribe to our newsletter and tick 'Ancient Coins' under category interests, to receive Josh's Ancient Coins Newsletter and be one of the first to know when new stock is uploaded to our website.
