After Alexander the Great conquered Egypt, he left behind his trusted general Ptolemy I, who founded a dynasty that lasted 275 years. Under the Ptolemies, Egypt became a wealthy center of agriculture and learning. This dynasty produced some of the most beautiful bronze coins the ancient world had yet seen.
Struck in Egypt from 247-145 B.C., these bronze coins bring together ancient Egyptian and Greek cultures. These remarkable coins were struck in different sizes, most likely as an indication of differing denominations. Whichever you own, you’ll hold a genuine piece of ancient Egyptian history.
