Why buy this Byzantine Empire AD 610-641 Gold Solidus of Heraclius?
A Gold Solidus from the Byzantine Empire provides collectors with one of the things they desire most - the chance to connect with the past. The coin was issued during the reign of Heraclius, who was known for a reorganization of the military that enabled him to stop the advances of the Muslims in Asia Minor, a feat that changed history. Heraclius is best known as the man who recovered the True Cross, the Cross on which Jesus was crucified, from the Persians.
Heraclius, Heraclius Constantine, and Heraclonas Design
Heraclius, Heraclius Constantine, and Heraclonas stand side by side on the obverse. Heraclius is in the center and wears a crown. Heraclonas, the short figure on the left, wears a cap. Heraclius Constantine is on the right and, like Heraclius, has a crown on his head. In the upper left is a Cross.
A Cross Potent stands at the top of steps on the reverse. Below is the the CONOB mint mark.
Well Preserved - Almost Uncirculated!
NGC Ancients, the ancient coin division of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), graded these coins About Uncirculated (AU), an exceptional grade for coins that are almost a millennium and a half old. The AU grade signifies that a coin may have slight wear (from actual circulation in ancient commerce), but still retains full details. These coins can be difficult to find in any condition, so one that is this well preserved is a true find.
