Andronicus II Palaeologus, with Michael IX. 1282-1328. AR Basilikon or Weight for Basilika Constantinople mint. Andronicus and Michael standing facing, holding patriarchal cross between them / +XAP/AGMACEP/ TOKAT AB/OLIKVBD/LLV in five lines across field. Bendall, Weights 22; PCPC 383


The legend on the reverse of these coins translates as “Money from the Sacred Mint discredits false coin,” which seems to suggest that they are coin weights. The fact that they are left out of DOC V reinforces this view. However, the basilikon was introduced by Andronicus as a new silver denomination, and the legend may also imply that these types were the first. Bendall noted that the weights of the known examples are all slightly higher than the standard Basilikon of 2.4g. Thus, these issues could possibly be a trial run at a slightly higher weight, one that was discounted in favor of the lower weight types that became the standard issue.source :CNG

Interesting example, CLBC says about 40-50 copies known. I do not always agree with the rarity system of the catalog but he lists this as rarity 4 and says even though Sear listed it as common he only found one for sale in the past few years.

I saw the 5 copies of the coins on sale for the last 3 years. I have 2 copies of the coins in his collection.
One of them is found in Cyprus, as this coin too.
I think the rating R4 corresponds to the reality.

I think it was found in Cyprus as well.

Lovely coin,  not a series of John I have spent much time looking at. The obverse is a stretched wing, what does this represent do you think?

This John VIII 1/8 stav is from the Constantine XI hoard so it is pictured, weighed, described in the Simon Bendall's "The coinage of Constantine XI" published in Revue Numismatique.  This John VIII is coin #64 in the hoard, so I have this and my Constantine XI (#148) from that hoard.  All known John VIII 1/8 stavraton come from this hoard or the Corlu hoard acording to Bendall.  There were 16 of this type in the Constantine XI hoard.

Hello Everyone

I just got this coin, and the auctioneer called it rare.  It is a silver 1/2 siliqua of Justinian I.  On the coin flip it is called a 1/2 siliqua

"Justinian I (527-565 AD). AR 1/2-Siliqua (14-15 mm, 1.08 g), Carthage, 534-565 AD.
Obv. D N IVSTINI-ANVS PP AI, pearl-diademed and draped bust right.
Rev. VOT / MVL / HTI within wreath.
Ex. CONOS.
Sear 253."
 
Different, being a Byzantine coin from Carthage.  "Issued at Carthage after the reconquest of the African province from the Vandals by Belisarius."  --Brian

I like this thread and I think it is worth keeping alive. I just read it again from the beginning.

Here is a rare one I picked up this summer. This is the auction houses picture. I am going to reshoot my collection in the upcoming months.
