The history of coinage in Iran started in the late 6th century by the order of King Darius the Great, and this paved the way for the development of an item that defined the empire. The release and subsequent use of these Persians coins allowed the empire to showcase not just its advanced economy, but also its culture. Persian coins are usually made from gold, and depicted Persian warriors and their life and culture. Right now, these are great collector items that can serve as investments and conversational pieces and we can help you build your own.
At Sadigh Gallery, we provide you with access to some rare Persian coins that can help you build your personal collection. Our Persian coins are usually made from gold and silver and feature intricate designs and details that allow you to take a peek at life in the empire. Our collection of coins is sourced from different time periods, with some coins used in 200 BC to 200 AD like the silver Persian coins that feature the portrait of a bearded king on one side and inscriptions on the other side. We also offer silver coins, including silver Tabaristan coins (763-794 AD) and the silver coin of Shapur II, with portrait bust wearing a crown.
