300 BC Thurium Silver Stater NGC CH AU-STAR
This Incredibly Rare Silver Stater Holds an Ancient Secret!
Struck sometime around 300 BC, this ancient silver stater is an immensely important historical artifact. Thanks to the impossibly well-preserved detail on the coin -- a coin, we should mention, which is only one of 10 ever recorded -- we know that it was struck in the ancient city of Thuria, a Greek colony located in southern Italy and founded by exiles from the fallen city of Sybaris. Unfortunately, much about the colony is a mystery, as ancient historians wrote very little about the exile city of Thuria -- and that's where this 2,300 year-old coin comes in.
Thanks to the incredible condition of this coin, graded Choice About Uncirculated Star (CH AU*) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) with a Strike 5/5 and Surface 3/5, along with other coins discovered with the same mint mark, historians have a better idea of the prosperity the city must have held. Add this fascinating clue to your collection today!
