Product Description

Of all the symbols associated with Ancient Greece, the dolphin is not likely to be the first thing to come to mind, but it is a very important symbol in Greek history. First associated with Poseidon, the god of the sea, dolphin imagery evokes Poseidon's greatness. Each Ancient Greek city used a symbol on their coinage to evoke their founding myth, etymology, or the city's chosen diety. The city of Cyzicus was ruled by the Persian Empire until it was captured by Alexander the Great in 334 B.C.E. Cyzicus was known for its tuna fishing which fueled the local economy. On this stunning gold coin, the two dolphins of Poseidon encircling Cyzicus' tuna symbolizes the ancient city's devotion and blessing from the sea god. Struck in 1/2 g of .9999 fine gold, this coin had a mintage of just 15,000 pieces. Of that small mintage, only 377 have ever received a perfect NGC MS70 grade! Add this modern homage to an ancient tradition to your collection today, as we only have 10 pieces in stock!
