More than 2,300 years ago in the fourth century B.C., an ancient Greek colony produced one of the most outstanding silver coins in history, the silver hemidrachm. An exquisite work of art struck by hand by skilled artisans, it features a magnificent lion — a powerful symbol of the region — and was cherished by everyone from kings to traders, merchants and farmers.
Most ancient Greek lion silver coins were lost to history or melted for their precious metal thousands of years ago, but not this one! It has been expertly certified by NGC, one of the world’s leading coin-grading companies, and is safely encapsulated in an archival-quality holder. Presented in a free wooden display chest, the extraordinary coin will arrive with a detailed information booklet and magnifying loupe.
