Customer Reviews

Issued circa 58 B.C. for Azes II, this coin is thought to have been one type used by the Three Wise Men who delivered gifts to the baby Jesus! It’s believed that Azes sent Gaspar – one of the Three Wise Men – on the journey to visit Jesus in the manger more than 2,000 years ago. The king would have funded Gaspar’s travels, meaning that he may have carried coins just like these! Each coin offered here depicts Azes on horseback on the obverse. The reverse shows the goddess Athena. Adding to their historical significance, these are history’s first documented bilingual coins – which made it easy to use in trade between Greece and the Middle East. Examined by our experts, these Ancients are of the highest quality we’ve ever offered. Hard to find in these higher grades, so once they‘re gone, this quality may never be available again.
