Item Description:

 These cup-shaped silver coins are some of the oldest struck in the Indian subcontinent, and date back to the 6th century BCE. Unlike other coins produced in regions controlled by the Achaemenid Empire, these coins were not Greek inspired and instead feature an intricate geometric pattern.

The Achaemenid Empire was the first Persian empire, and controlled much of the land in the Middle East and India at its height. It expanded its borders to the Taxila-Gandhara region of modern day Pakistan in 518 BCE, and the area remained under Achaemenid control until it was conquered by Alexander the Great two hundred years later.

Because of the age of these coins, many vary in shape. However, all are about the same size and have a similar level of detail.

Each includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
