On a whim this evening I set the parameters in the advanced search function at VCoins to $15,000 and above, just to see what the hits looked like. The search resulted in 89 items, a few of which were antiquities. Here is a selection from the group.

Augustus denarius, $22,072



Queen Arsinoe II octadrachm, $30,000



Messana tetradrachm, $19,000



Kyrene gold stater, $69,820



Caracalla aureus, $33,006



Antoninus Pius aureus, $22,850



Marcus Aurelius medallion, $27,868



Leontini tetradrachm, $21,000



Pantikapaion stater, $75,000



Lusius Verus aureus, $22,500



Metapontion tetrobol or third stater, $15,500



Kroisos stater, $21,068



Mithradates VI Pontic Kingdom stater, $49,500

Nice eye candy! My fave is the stater from Pantikapaion.

Can you imagine the collections of the people who buy such things?

For use mere mortals if we had the money I am sure several nice coins would be preferable, the kind of people who buys these I am sure money is not an issue... they surely would already have many jawdropping coins.

Yeah, right, Steve...I'm a teacher. At a school suffering severely from state cut-backs. 'Nuff said.

Seriously, what surprises me with these coins is that they are even listed through VCoins, as opposed to being auctioned off in the biggie international auctions that attract the types of individuals who invest in this higher end material. Perhaps some of the dealers are listing them with a thought that, down the line - if they don't move, then they'll be auctioned.

Not sure why, but that Arsinoe II is my favorite of the bunch.

And while these are some pretty big-ticket items, what shocks me the most is that not a single one holds a candle to the "rockstar" US classic rarities; the 1913 V nickels and their ilk. Several Cheerios dollars have even beaten these out! Guess I just can't fathom those who don't share our passion

Thanks for sharing. They are all stunning. The Kyrene stater is my favorite with that four-horsed chariot. The Pantikapaion stater is my runner up favorite.
Rest in Peace

As always, big money talks. I can't say which is my favorite since I was attracted to different coins for different reasons. The Lydian lion and bull is always a favorite for me, but the detail on the tetradrachm of Messana and the Kyrene stater blew me away. Then again, the personality in the portrait on that denarius of Augustus!?!

Thanks for taking the time to share that with us, Bob.

Maybe the reason they were listed on Vcoins and not consigned to an auction house is that the coins would have to be either shipped or taken to the auction house. Being listed on Vcoins seller holds onto them. The auctions fees are most likely higher at the auction house than Vcoin fees. An auction house would give and low and high sale estimate, the seller could put a reserve on the item and if it didn't sell than it would have to be shipped back to the seller. On Vcoins the seller names his price, the buyer and seller are able to come to a sale price directly cutting out the middle man. The whole time the coin has never left the sellers hands.

It would be something else to have a collection of these stunning works of art. My memory isn't as good as it use to be, but I do seem to recall that we have a member that has a set of the twelve Caesars in both gold and silver.
