Corona Virus Update

Buying from us

We continue to operate here at Silbury Coins in these unprecedented times, albeit working from home. You can still buy items on our website as usual. Shipping may take a little longer as we are making fewer trips to the post office and some postal services are operating a reduced service. We will keep you updated at every step of the order/shipping process. If you have any questions regarding shipping you can contact Lucy (lucy@silburycoins.com) or John (info@silburycoins.com) and they will be happy to help. 

We are closely monitoring the postal service and will update on any changes, if you'd prefer we can safely store your items until a later date, just ask.

Selling to us

We are still buying single items and collections by post. If you’d prefer you can send pictures via email, phone or WhatsApp for a rough valuation first. To sell items please send them to us using Royal Mail Special Delivery (available at any post office, both insured and tracked). Please package well and include your contact details, we will be in touch when your package arrives with an exact price. If this is acceptable we will pay you by direct bank transfer, if not we will return the items to you via the same method of post.

Byzantine

The Byzantine Empire, also known as the Eastern Roman Empire and Byzantium, represented the continuation of the Roman Empire in the East during Late Antiquity and into the Middle Ages. Its capital, Constantinople (modern day Istanbul), reinaugerated from Byzantium by Constantine I (The Great) in 324AD, became the largest and wealthiest city in Europe between the 5th and 7th centuries, and again between the 9th and 12th centuries AD. The Byzantine Empire existed from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West during the 5th century AD and continued until the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in the 15th century AD. For much of its existence, the Byzantine Empire was the most powerful in Europe in terms of its economic, cultural, and military attributes. During the early period, its coinage consisted of mainly two types, the gold solidus and bronze coins of marked value, in later times it comprised silver issues and small bronzes.
