Pillar Dollars and Busts Portraits

Historic Coins

This section is reserved for any coins (mainly in replaceable quantities) that have interesting

 stories behind Emperors, kings, battles and legends that made history!

 

History can be studied in books, but it is so much more exciting to hold that history in your own hands! Reading a coin is not only about identifying an assayer or a rare mint; sometimes it is all about a monarch, king, emperor or tyrant who made history, or maybe a legend that was passed from generation to generation. These coins provide a key for opening the door to world history and treasuring the past.
