Coin attributed and entered into Wildwinds


Recommended Posts

I asked Dane at Wildwinds for some help with this coin. She is extremely knowledgeble and very helpful. There are a number of this style of coin but there were no item or description on the site with these particular monograms. After attributing it she asked if it could be added to the page. This is probably nothing special to most of you, but to me, having my coin there, gives me a feeling of satisfaction that others who may have another example of it, now have an attribution to go with it.

Feel free to post any coins of yours that were previously missing from a respected site or publication.

This is my only wildwinds "plate" coin - it's also the fourth example cited (and illustrated) on RPC online - and for good measure, it is also the "plate" coin for Numista.com: 😜


AE Dichalkon (14.78mm, 1.50g, 12h)
Struck AD 45/6. Egypt, Alexandria mint
Obverse: ΤΙΒ ΚΛΑV, laureate head of Claudius right
Reverse: L-Ϛ, eagle standing right
References: RPC I 5171.4 (this coin) Numista 375930 (this coin). This coin is also the illustrated specimen on Wildwinds.com

Comments: Very rare. Smooth dark surfaces. Excellent condition for the type.
