The Oldest Coin in the World
This is a pitcher of the oldest coin in the world this coin can be found in the British Museum. This coin has only one side and the side with a pitcher shows a roaring lion witch is the symbol of the Lydian Kings they created it around 610-600 BC. Its size is close to a dime in diameter but closer to the weight of a quarter. If you were looking for this coin in the time it was being made you could find it in modern day Turkey. This coin was made of electrum witch is a natural or artificial alloy of gold with at least 20 percent silver, used for jewelry, especially in ancient times, this coin was worth close to one paycheck for the month.

Thank you for the informative post. Just one thing to note: I would recommend cleaning up the link (removing the text from the ampersand to the end).
A very beautiful coin for sure. TY for sharing your knowledge.
That is a very beautiful ancient coin.. Try to get a photo up. A lot of members won't go to other sites. Why do you think this is the oldest coin in the world??? Thanks
Thanks for the information. The lion is also the symbol of Britain.I would like to see if but I do not go to other sites. I'm sure it's safe but I was burned once and it will never happen again. I'm sure it's a coin to see. I will just search the Museum. Thanks for your time and information.
Thanks for your advice this is my first blog post and I just learned how to put in a pitcher.
