Lydia Croesus Light Stater NGC Choice Very Fine Strike 5/5/, Surface 3/5
Lydia Croesus Light Stater NGC CHVF 5×3
SOLD February 10th. Absolutely phenomenal looking coin for the grade and nearly 2,600 years old, this gold stater of Lydia was issued by King Croesus himself. Struck in bright yellow gold, the coin depicts a lion and bull on the obverse, thought to mean strength and virility. The reverse employs an incuse punch from when the coin was hand-hammered so long ago. Coins such as these do not come along often at all.
