Why purchase this 12-coin collection of bronze coinage struck by the civilizations of ancient Greece?

The Ionian Greeks began producing coinage around 600 BC. The dominance and spread of Greek culture, language, science and coin design can be attributed to this early establishment of a coin based monetary system. Centuries later, design of ancient Greek coinage served as an inspiration to President Theodore Roosevelt for the re-designing of United States coinage in the early 20th century.

This exciting collection of Greek bronze coinage spans a period of approximately seven centuries, ranging from a coin of Thrace, struck 5th-4th century BC, to a Drachm of Elymais, struck 1st-3rd century AD; each coin bearing a regionally symbolic image.
