  • Siliqua

    I have been increeasingly interested in Roman Siliqua.

    What is a reasonable price range for a Constantine era Siliqua in gVF? Were there lage numbers of them minted? They seem somewhat scare.

    Thanks,
    Decius

    You should be able to get a good one for around 40 to 60 US$ on ebay. These are relatively rare. Silver was a quite a bit more "precious" during the later roman empire and, therefore, quite fewer coins were minted in silver. I hope this helps you

      Go to the search page on VCoins http://www.vcoins.com/search.asp and type in "siliqua" and you will find 54 coins listed, pictured and described. Only one is as cheap as the prior poster suggested that you could find them on eBay, but this should give you a good idea as to who is offering what in what kind of condition for what price.

      Sincerely,
      Mike

        Siliquae, especially nice Constantinian examples, are not easy to find at all. I've seen a great many scrappy condition or clipped examples of siliquae, but nice grade with full flans are always desireable. A little bit easier to obtain is just past the Constantine Era into pieces that would be found in RIC VIII or IX. These seem to be more plentiful than ones of Constantine or his sons.

        Best of success in the hunt,
