Sweden, World War II 5 Ore Iron

During World War II there was a shortage of most metals worldwide, so each country used whatever metal was available. In Sweden's case on the lower denominations, they are large sized coins, but they struck them in iron. We have just bought 100 pieces of the 5 Ore issued between 1942 and 1945. They are in Very Fine condition and struck in iron. It is the first time that we have been able to offer this interesting World War II coin. But there are only 100 available and there are a lot of World War II collectors around…

Picture of Drachm of Ariobarzanes III Very Good

Drachm of Ariobarzanes III Very Good

Ariobarzanes III of Cappadocia was one of the last of the true Greek kings. He had the surnames ‘Eusebes Philorhomaios’ meaning ‘Pious and Friend of the Romans’. He earned this as the Roman senate helped put him on the throne about 52 B.C., just before the huge Roman civil war between the Senate, under Pompey the Great, and Julius Caesar. Repaying this he supported Pompey and the Roman Senate against Julius Caesar but when it was obvious that Caesar would win he switched sides to survive. Eventually, though this ‘treachery’ caught up with him! In 42 B.C. he was killed by one of Caesar's assassins, Gaius Cassius Longinus, for being fed up and refusing to allow more Romans to interfere in his kingdom. We offer a Silver Drachm from Cappadocia of Ariobarzanes III. They grade Very Good and show his head on the obverse with Athena holding Nike on the reverse. Add to your collection one of the last truly Greek silver coins from a ruler who learned the hard way, what did the Romans do for us!
