Ancient Coins

"Coins", as defined by a piece of metal with an issuing authority stamped on it, have been produced since the time of King Croesus of Lydia, around 650 BC. There were many ancient cultures and this page will be base for each of them, as I acquire material to add to the site.  The sub-pages on each culture, or collecting area, will be broken down into however the predominant attributing resource is configured.  For example, the Roman Imperial category is broken into 13 sub-pages, following the layout of the 10-volume series, "Roman Imperial Coins", published by Spink.
