Own the oldest coin we offer...

Today you can own a coin that is over 2,144 years old.  That makes it comfortably the oldest coin we have available today, and it carries the most incredible sense of history.

The 'Lily of Jersualem' bronze coin was struck around 132-130 BC by King Antiochus VII. Owning this coin will feel like having your own museum piece in your collection.

It is of particular historical importance as it was a prototype for the famous 'prutah' denomination, which was prevalent in the Middle East around the time of Jesus - which gives some context to its remarkable age.

The Lily of Jerusalem Bronze Coin

One side of your coin features the image of a Lily - the symbol of Jerusalem.  The other side depicts an inverted anchor with the Greek inscription Of King Antiochus Benefactor and the date.  

Your coin will come ready to display in a Presentation Box with Certificate of Authenticity and it has been sourced directly from Israel by The Holy Land Mint.

This is the perfect opportunity to own a coin that was minted at the height of the Roman empire, yet tells a different side of the story.  However as you might expect with a coin of this age our stock is limited so please order today to avoid disapointment and add a sense of history to your collection.
