Welcome to our world of ancient coins and artifacts!

We were one of the first web only ancient coin dealers on the Internet and have been in business since 1996 offering value priced ancient coins and antiquities. We carry an inventory of reasonably priced ancient coins and artifacts from all over the ancient world.

All of our items are guaranteed authentic for life. We are proud to be a founding member of the VCoins group of dealers and adhere to the VCoins Code of Ethics.



We offer a wide variety of coins, artifacts and books to fit every budget and collecting interest in our VCoins shop. New items are being added continually, so visit often to see what's new.



We are back on eBay, after several years on VAuctions, with a mix of 10 coins and artifacts per week. We have over 1800 positive feedback so you can bid with confidence. Our eBay items carry the same lifetime guarantee of authenticity as our Vcoins and mailing list sales.



We do accept coins and artifacts for consignment. Please be sure to email us before shipping and include any information that you have about your items. Pictures are a plus, if you have them. Check our consignment page for details and rates.
