Much of Azes's 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.

5.0

This is just an awesome coin to have in any collection. I like showing it to my daughters so they can see a piece of history. For the price you just can't go wrong. This is an item you want to keep and not sell so don't think about investment.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Attractive Design
