Gallienus Goat Antoniniani 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 8 rebellions from his own governors and generals! He issued a fantastic group of bronze Antoniniani 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. The Seventh we offer from this series is of a Goat walking. These are designed to honour Jupiter, King of the Gods, and god of the Sky, vows and victory. The coins are 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. These are consistently selling out!

Peru, 1/2 Dinero Unc

A group of these early Peru silver coins came up at auction and we bought them! The denomination is 1/2 Dinero and they were issued between 1901 and 1917, which means of course, that they are over 100 years old, but also in uncirculated condition. You do not see these coins in such high grade all that often. We were delighted to buy the lot, as the price was reasonable and the quality very high, a combination you don’t often get. They are small Silver coins, but of high grade silver (900 fine), as Peru is known for being an important silver producer. The quality is outstanding and we can supply a few different dates. For a coin you never see in excellent condition, what more can you ask for?
