Ranked as #10 out of the 100 Greatest Ancient Coins, the 2,450-year-old Athenian Silver Owl is an impressive ancient coin with a remarkable history.
The Owl could be found in every marketplace in the Mediterranean and beyond back then, and today they survive as a testament to the glory of the city of Athens. Until our Buying Trust acquired this most recent group, owls of this quality brought double what we’re asking for them today.
We believe once these are absorbed by the marketplace, prices will quickly recover to normal (higher) levels. This particular owl has an enormous amount of character and eye appeal, along with the coveted Star designation. Great coin for the money.
