Ancient and Medieval coins, sometimes called antique coins, are very desirable to collectors due to their history, beauty and the intrinsic value of the Precious Metals that went into creating each coin. They also provide a tangible link to mankind's historic past. By definition, the newest of these coins is at least 550 years old, and the countries and empires that issued them show that these historic coins gave the people that used them confidence in their value because of the Precious Metals they contained.
Each of these ancient coins offered here comes from different time periods throughout history. It gives us a glimpse into how important currency was, and still is, today. Buyers can literally own a piece of history in their hands with these rare coins. They are unlike any traditional bullion or commemorative set. Every finish is different because minting technology was archaic and virtually non-existent. These surviving coins are considered the highest-valued collectible coins available today, because they are one of the first coins on the planet used as currency or trade.
While paper currency does not contain any Precious Metals, it is often rare, collectible and valuable. APMEX's currency collection contains everything from vintage U.S. notes to Zimbabwe 100 Trillion Dollar notes, so shop today and take advantage of these special prices on select currency!
