The cleaning of the coins
The Roman coins which we are offering here are all uncleaned. In this condition not much - if anything - can be seen of what the coin represents in the way of emperor or the illustration on the reverse, because they are covered with a layer of earth. The coins can be cleaned with the help of olive oil, a simple diy electrolysis bath, or using chemicals. (a short guide to clean the coins will be added). During the cleaning procedure you can judge which coins are better than othes. There are always coins which are more worn than others or whose details are less clear, and which need to be sorted out from the rest. How long does it take ? Beginners usually try to rush things and clean frantically for a minute or so. With time and a little experience you will take longer over each coin, taking more care to retain the details. But even using the recommended methods described on the Information page, cleaning can take anything from a couple of minutes to many weeks, depending on the hardness of the dirt layer. On average, let's say a couple of days.

Here are some examples for cleaned coins:

 

Identifying the cleaned coins
After cleaning, the coins can be identified either using a website e.g. (Wildwinds.com), a book (e.g. by David Sear or David VanMeter) or using auction catalogs which can often be bought quite cheaply on ebay. There are literally thousands of different coins from over 200 Roman emperors. Some types of coin have over 1,000 different variations. Every emperor and empress issued his or her own coins in numerous values and variations. The most extensive data bases are: "Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum" (SNG) and "A Catalogue Of the Greek Coins in the British Museum" (BMC, 29 volumes). But there are also good ways to identify them for free

The collection of ancient coins as an good investment
Some of my clients invest their money in Roman coins. They sell any multiple copies and invest the money in more coins to increase the size of their collection. Such collections will never lose their value because Roman coins are a limited commodity, no matter how many are being found. They will never be made again ! Other buyers collect them just for interest, from a love of history and of our common past, others are teachers who use them to make history classes more interesting, parents buy them as a project for their children, as talking points, to make jewelry, as a unique gift for their friends and loved ones etc.

The price development
Roman coins have been collected for about the last 100 years. Before 1960 there were very few found and these were mostly sent to museums, and so it was extremely difficult for collectors to get hold of them. But once electronics came to the assistance of detectory, the export began to grow. At first they came from Yugoslavia, the Lebanon, and, as Communism ended and borders were re-opened, also from Eastern Europe, where they were found in huge numbers and exported. The prices at first were lower than they are today because of the sheer numbers being found.  

The past few years has seen a slight increase in price (also in view of inflations). Recently there has been the threat of a shortage because less and less coins are now being found and so the prices are going up. There will always be a demand for Roman coins but it is very likely that soon there will be no more large numbers available. When that time arrives the prices will rise sharply because there is no longer the supply to fill the demand. That is when the hamsters will begin to draw from the coins they have feretted away and sell them at high prices. And when those have been sold, the price will take another jump upwards.

You still have the chance of buying uncleaned Roman coins at a sensible and acceptable price. The assurance that these make a good investment comes from the fact that their value will increase faster than inflation.

We take care in sharing out the coins fairly for each buyer
I am often asked which criteria I use when "choosing" coins for the buyers. Well, I always try to ensure that every buyer receive more or less the same quality of coins, especially as far as the sizes and general quality go. But as mentioned above, you can't even see the contours of most uncleaned coins and these will be only be visible after cleaning them. So, of course there are differences, the ratio of which are balanced out by the quantity you buy.
