King Khrusro II was the last great Sasanian king of Iran, ruling from 590 to 628 A.D. The Sasanian Empire was the last Persian imperial dynasty before the arrival of Islam in the mid-seventh century A.D. Named after the House of Sasan, it endured for over four centuries, from 224 to 651 A.D., making it the longest-lived Persian dynasty. The Sasanian Empire succeeded the Parthian Empire and re-established the Iranians as a superpower. For the next four hundred years, it would be recognized as one of the leading world powers in late antiquity, alongside its neighbouring arch-rival, the Roman-Byzantine Empire. Tabaristan is a province in northern Iran, diverse in nature, rich in resources, and outstandingly beautiful. In Tabaristan, there are several fortresses remaining from the Parthian Empire and Sasanian Empire.

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 treasure 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.
