The Handbook of Greek Coinage Series

Handbook of Greek Coinage Series: Volume 6

Valuing coins is an art that combines the grade, the aesthetics, and the desirability with the given supply. Ancient coins, by their very nature, turn up from time to time in finds. This fact changes the values. Many of the coins in these handbooks have not surfaced on the market in many years and, as a result, no attempt is being made to predict their value. Users of the site are invited to submit information for coins which display "No recent sales records". Just click on those entries to send the publisher more information.

Values are presented in three grades. These grades are based on a combination of a coin’s wear state, preservation, metal quality, defects, and aesthetics.

Grade 1

Gold: A low to medium grade coin, often with problems, sometimes with mount marks.
Silver: A well worn specimen, but identifiable, often with bad metal and other defects.
Bronze: A well worn specimen, but identifiable, often with porous surfaces and rough patina.

Grade 2

Gold: A medium grade to lightly worn coin, should not be from a mount.
Silver: A medium grade to lightly worn coin, with minimal problems, metal might be lightly porous, should be nicely centered and well struck.
Bronze: A medium grade to lightly worn coin, with nice surfaces or a nice patina, should be well centered and struck.

Grade 3

Gold: A well preserved specimen with little wear, problem free.
Silver: A well preserved specimen with little wear, problem free, should be nicely centered and well struck.
Bronze: A well preserved specimen with little wear, with nice surfaces and/or a nice patina. It should be well centered and struck. In many cases, you will find no price for Grade 3 bronzes, because these coins circulated and rarely occur in a well preserved state. As hoards are found, there are usually a certain percentage of nicer coins that come to market. When this occurs, we will update the pricing structure.
