Ask these people, they have several ancient coins of Roman, Judean era coins but the images are a pain to find. If you send them the image of your coin, they can help. It's an auction site I believe.
Thanks, I sent them an email.
Keep it, don't sell it! However if you want to sell it already, know that people would want to rip you off.
I only have golden Napoleon coin from 1850.
For sure have to look around to first find if it's even real and than to see what it's worth. How much is your Napoleon coin worth?
I don't know what coin this is. I was a numismatic dealer for a few years but I was dealing paper money only. However, even if it is 1000 years old (and I pretty much doubt it is ) it doesn't have to worth some huge money. I have some coins for Ottoman period and Republic of Ragusa that are hundreds of years old and none of them worth more than 20-30 dollars, even the gold ones.
Age is not the main factor of coin or banknote value. Rarity is. There are for example many Russian banknotes that are 100 years old but their numismatic value is few dollars. And there are some banknotes few years old that worth hundreds of dollars.
Anyway, OP, I suggest you to go to some local numismatic meeting ( I am pretty sure there are many of them in big towns) and ask someone to help you. There are many coins encyclopedia guys out there, someone would help you. Or try searching Google groups, many of collector enhthusiasts are having their groups there.
Thanks, I'll check out their groups. I personally highly doubt this is going to be of real worth anyways, I'm simply not that lucky.
