Winged Lion of Cyzicus Electrum Stater NGC About Uncirculated 4×4
We love the value found in the earliest of all coinage: electrum. Electrum is what coins were made of starting 650 B.C.–it is a naturally occurring mixture of gold and silver and could be found in and around streams and riverbeds. This particular example is 2,500 years and is the highest graded example we have seen of a winged lion. Lions were often depicted in the earliest coinage, however, this is the first we have seen with wings. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Great coin for the price and one of the earliest coins you will ever encounter.
