The Silk Road was one of the most successful trade routes in ancient history, playing a critical role in both European and Asian culture. It stretched for thousands of miles across treacherous terrain, linking Europe and the Byzantine Empire in the west to exotic markets in the east, such as India and China.By special arrangement, Danbury Mint has acquired a limited quantity of two hand-struck silver coins that were traded along this legendary route—the silver drachm and silver hemidrachm. More than 1,200 years old, yet beautifully preserved and certified authentic in About Uncirculated condition by leading coin-grading company NGC, these nearly extinct works of art can still be yours.These remarkable coins have been sonically-sealed in archival-quality holders and will arrive in a luxurious wooden Display Chest — yours at no additional charge.
