Athenian Empire Coins

The Athenian Empire came into existence due to the struggle against the Persian invasion. The two most powerful city-states, Athens and Sparta, put aside their differences to fight the common enemy as they united the Greek military forces. The empire forged both political and economic dominance in the area from 460-430 B.C.

  • Athenian Owl Full Crest Silver Tetradrachm NGC AU Star

    Ranked as #10 out of the 100 Greatest Ancient Coins, the 2,450-year-old Athenian Silver Owl is an impressive ancient coin with a remarkable history. The Owl could be found in every marketplace in the Meditteranean and beyond back then, and today they survive as a testament to the glory of the city of Athens. Until our Buying Trust acquired this most recent group, owls of this quality brought double what we're asking for them today. We believe once these are absorbed by the marketplace, prices will quickly recover to normal (higher) levels. This particular owl has an enormous amount of character and eye appeal, along with the coveted Star designation AND the full crest, which only 1.3% of all certified owls possess. Great coin for the money. Learn More
