  • Hello!

    From the photos, your coin looks like an antique greek-macedonean gold coin (probably a stater). Besides this,one coin's sides looks like severely damaged in circulation or by man's hand. But...all these are from photos. 

    To know something for sure,we need:

    1) accurate weight of the coin.

    2) that you ask,at a jeweler's shop,if your coin is made of real gold or not! Your coin may be genuine or a copy/fake. If you'll find out it's real gold made,then your coin is 100% authentic. If the coin is just gold plated(?),then it is 100% a copy of almost no value.

    In order to tell you possible collectable value,please come back to us with the jeweler's answer + a macro photo of the coin's side opposite to that with a head (Alexander Macedon,probably) + the coin's weight.

      Thank you for your reply

  • Hi FL --

    Here's what a genuine one looks like. Your coin is faithful to the inscriptions and pattern, but is smashed in several ways, probably post-mint damage and gold harvesting by a crook. Your coin looks genuine, but smashed, to me. Andi's gold test is super-important. Use a non-destructive test (e.g., an XRF machine).

    Here's the auction description for the one in my picture. Yours is probably worth 1/4 of this one due to its smash-ness!
