Are these Roman and Biblical Coins Authentic?
Absolutely! These coins are actual man-made
coins, most of which are over 1,700 years old. There are some
Byzantine's which can be as late as sixth century AD, and there are
also some Greeks which can be from over 300 BC.
Where do Roman Coins come from?
They come from Europe. There were no banks during Roman
times. People would hoard their money and bury it in the ground or
hide it in caves. They would then go off to battle, or forget
where they put it, or get killed on the road by thieves for not
having any money on them. The coins sat there for hundreds of
years until they were then found, divided up, and sold to
coin dealers...like me.
How Old Are These Coins?
Most are 1,700 Years old or more.
What are Roman Coins made of?
Bronze, copper, silver, gold, and electrum mostly. More
than likely you will not find any gold coins in these lots.
I've never found one and I buy thousands. People who say that
you will find gold are lying and that's not a very nice way to do
business. You can find silver coins, although these are fairly
rare, and you may find coins that show "silvering" which is
basically a bronze coins with a wash of silver.

coins once cleaned, and decide what they are worth. I'll be
adding these to my ID section before long.

How can you sell the uncleaned coins so cheap?
I buy in bulk, and they are uncleaned. Many dealers sell these same coins for $2.50
each, but I feel that it is more important to spread the hobby than
make a killing. In short, my profit margin is thin, and I buy
Do you accept Credit Cards?
Yes and No. I accept all major credit cards through PayPal.
I do not have a merchant account to directly accept credit cards, so
you have to register with PayPal, but this only takes a minute and
is safe. You don't want to be giving your credit card info out
to all the small stores on the Internet anyway. PayPal handles
millions of transactions and is very safe.
Do I have to Register on PayPal to Pay you?
No, only if you are paying with a credit card. If you
would like to purchase coins with a check or money order, then
send me an email and I will
send you the total along with my address.
