This coin was struck in 100 BC, 2,100 years ago in Ancient Greece. Two coiled serpents are depicted, as well as the cista mystic, a sacred snake set in a basket of ivy in preparation for the initiation ceremony into the cult of Dionysus, god of liberation, freedom and wine.

This coin was minted in Pergamon, a city that held a healing center built in honor of Asklepios, the god of healing. Asklepios was thought to have a snake form - symbol of transformation, death and rebirth as it sheds its skin.

This coin was hand selected by us from one of the oldest numismatic sources in London.
