Ancient Greek Coins

The first ancient Greek coins, created shortly before 600 B.C, were made of electrum, but solid gold and silver coins were developed as minting techniques progressed. The Ancient Greek world was divided into thousands of self-ruling city states: each of these produced its own currency, and used its coins as a symbol of status. Collecting Greek coins presents varied and exciting opportunities for both the experienced and novice numismatist, with our Greek Numismatic section including examples of the Athenian drachma, Alexander the Great tetradrachms, and staters from Boeotia and Corinth.
