Part of one of the most important, most historic series in numismatics, the Aegina Turtle Stater was struck from 510-485BC

The island-state of Aegina is thought to have issued the first coins in Europe, in about 700BC, with that first type being the Turtle Silver Stater.

Reflecting its status as a maritime power, Aegina chose the turtle for its coinage, and the Turtle Silver Stater rivaled the Athens Silver Owl as the 'international currency of antiquity'.
