Apollo was a major ancient deity, essentially Greek but also worshipped in Rome. He had many aspects. He was depicted as a beautiful youth, often called “shining,” sometimes a sun god, the brother of the virgin goddess Diana, who was a moon deity. Like her, he hunted with a silver bow, and he was called the far-shooter. On the reverse, one can discover the iconography of a horse – a prominent animal on Roman coins. The horse is loved for its strength, intelligence, speed, loyalty and beauty. It is associated with paying homage to the horses of war.

Each ancient coin and artefact we place into jewellery has been restored and professionally stabilised to preserve it for lifetimes of enjoyment. Patina, the natural toning and oxidation that occurs on silver, bronze and copper coins, is not dirt – it is a layer of what becomes protection for the coin formed over hundreds of years and is a valuable part of the coin’s unique history. Conservation efforts stabilise and preserve these precious patinas whenever possible. Please don’t try to “improve” your ancient coin, it has already been perfected by numismatic specialists.
Silver naturally tones over time to a soft to deepening grey, with brighter highlights on the raised surfaces of the design. This toning is highly coveted as it adds a touch of age and beauty to the coin’s details that only time can. DO NOT, under any circumstances, attempt to strip this patina. You may clean your coin bezel (the metal frame around your coin) only with a soft, non-abrasive polishing cloth. To remove skin oils and smudges from your silver ancient coin jewellery, use warm water mixed with non-citrus, plain dish soap and a soft-bristle tooth brush. Rinse it in clean water and use a soft, cotton towel to gently and completely dry.
