  • Achaemenid Empire Silver Siglos NGC Choice Very Fine 4x2

    This Persian Silver Siglos was struck over 2,300 years ago and are very popular today. This is the last design type issued, the Type 4 design, which shows the Persian Hero King with bow drawn ready to attack the enemy. In his other hand, he is holding a dagger. This particular coin has a "chop mark" an ancient test cut that was done to make sure the coin was made of pure silver. Very cool, the only one available. Learn More
