Product Description

About 500 years ago, a mysterious gold coin was discovered in the Transylvania region of Romania in southern Europe. At the time, it was determined to be about 1,500 years old, with its origin unknown. Even today, it remains as mysterious as ever. Though a few theories exist to explain when, where and by whom it was minted, this antiquity is renowned as one of the world’s most mysterious, famous and sought-after ancient gold coins.

Hand-struck before the birth of Christ, each was minted by a skilled artisan, so no two coins are exactly alike. The front features three marching soldiers and the inscription ????? – possibly denoting the issuing authority – a king otherwise unrecorded in history. The back features a spectacular eagle that may have influenced the design of early U.S. gold and silver coins.

Only a small number are known to exist, and Danbury Mint has acquired a limited quantity in exquisite uncirculated mint-state condition!

The coin you receive will:

• Be certified authentic by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), one of the world’s most trusted coin-grading services, as genuine mint-state (MS), or uncirculated.
• Be enhanced by a Collector’s Guide that narrates in fascinating detail the story of this gold coin.
• Arrive in a deluxe wooden Display Chest that measures approximately 4¼” x 1½” x 5¼”.
• Be safeguarded for future generations in a sonically sealed clear plastic holder, so that both sides can be easily examined without fear of damage from dust, dirt and fingerprints.
