About Us

We have been collectors of ancient coins for over 20 years. They are a subject of fascination and interest. Each coin is a unique work of art with a story to tell.

It has been said that times change but people don’t. Just as in modern times, ancient currencies were used to advance society. Since ancient times currency was required to promote government, education, irrigation, sanitation, roadway and other public projects in addition to day-to-day personal, commercial and religious undertakings. As we examine the historical references we recognize ancient money has underwritten unjustified conquests, slave trade, bribes and other shameless acts.

When reflecting on how ancient currency was used, our hobby can be a constant reminder that “money” is ideally intended to advance quality of life and cultivate richness of thought, emotion and behavior.

Please remember we are amateur collectors, historians and enthusiasts. Our hope is offer an increased understanding of these tiny windows to the past.

Many thanks to the staff at the numismatic firm Harlan J. Berk, LTD for all professional assistance in creating this website including expert photography of many coins. Without its proficiency and knowledge launching this task would have been difficult. We particularly thank Mr. Harlan J. Berk for the countless hours of discussions we have had about the numerous aspects of ancient coins resulting in our enhanced appreciation of our hobby.
