Exploring Their Historical Significance

Egyptian coins are historically significant in the manner they reflect the specific history of Egypt and its rulers. They are also important for the way that they connect Egypt to the greater Mediterranean world. Perhaps this is best discerned in the period of Ptolemaic rule. In the Ptolemaic period, Egyptian coinage featured a consistent pattern of characteristics that lasted throughout the period. However, the standard upon which the coinage was based changed from the silver standard to the bronze standard. The weight of the coinage eventually adopted the so-called Phoenician standards, representing more significant ties with the Phoenicians.

Associated with the historical significance of the coins, is the reality of Egyptian coins as miniature works of art. The reality is that the coin of a Ptolemy II Philadelphus will differ from that of a Ptolemy IV Philopator, which, of course, would also naturally differ from the coin of a Seleucid or Attalid ruler. There would be no reason to collect coins if they were all the same and Egyptian coins represent opportunities for independent collectors just as well as museums to own a little piece of history.
