Greek Coins
The history of Ancient Greek coinage can be divided into four periods; the Archaic, the Classical, the Hellenistic and the Roman. The Archaic period extends from the introduction of coinage to the Greek world during the 7th century BC until the Persian Wars in about 480 BC. The Classical period then began, and lasted until the conquests of Alexander the Great in about 330 BC, which began the Hellenistic period, extending until the Roman absorption of the Greek world in the 1st century BC.

All Greek coins were handmade. The design for the obverse was carved into a block of bronze or iron called a die. The design of the reverse was carved into a similar punch. A blank metal disk was cast in a mold, placed between the die and the punch, and struck hard with a hammer, raising the design on both sides of the coin.
