Description:

One of very few animal-shaped circulation coin types issued throughout history - if not the ONLY one! - these dolphin-shaped bronze coins of Ancient Greece are distinctive, eye-catching, genuine and outrageously good value-for-money.

Issued by the city-state of Olbia circa 3rd to 1st centuries BC, the unusual nature of the Dolphin coins is an illustration of the importance of this seafaring mammal to the people of Ancient Greece. Dolphins play a key role in Greek mythology, and their prominence in coin designs is testimony to the maritime/mercantile nature of life of the Ancient Mediterranean.


Measuring approximately 35mm in length, and guaranteed as genuine, the Olbian Dolphin Coin is a must-have for the remarkable shape alone.
