Biblical Silver Coins!
This Silver drachma is from the reign of Azes II, king of Bactria - present day Afghanistan - from 35 B.C. to A.D. 5. He was a political descendant of Alexander the Great , who brought Greek culture to the East.

The obverse legend of the coin is in Greek, and the reverse in Indian script, making his coinage among the earliest bilingual coinage. Much of Azes' coinage was issued before the birth of Christ, but some had to be struck on the day of Christ's birth, and all were in circulation when Christ lived.

The Magi , Caspar (or Gaspar), Melchior and Balthazar were thought to be court astrologers from the east. Many scholars believe Caspar to have been a representative sent by "The Great King" Azes II of ancient Bactria to the Holy Land to pay homage to the newborn Jesus.

These coins come in a deluxe folder with a certificate of authenticity.

Comments about Silver Coin of the Magi 35 BC - 5 AD In Deluxe Folder:

Interesting to hold such a relic; too bad mine has hardly any features on it and what's there is unrecognizable. Looks nowhere near as cool as the picture. But I trust it's authentic. Still cool but don't think every one they send out will look like the picture. I understand how they were made- the pictured one is a rare one, stamped in the center/cut properly. Most had offset marks and mines half missing. Just wish Apm. would make sure their best customers don't get the worst of the lot. Not worth the cost of returning.

      Comments about Silver Coin of the Magi 35 BC - 5 AD In Deluxe Folder:

      The display for this product is what caught my attention. The coin is backed with a COA and a nice pamphlet describing the history of this coin, which I thought was really intriguing.
