Classical Coins provides you with high quality digital images of the coins we offer. Created by a high resolution digital camera system, these images are far superior to scans.

Lighting is fully controlled, unlike scans, and is arranged to convey the most accurate impression of the preservation and surface condition of each coin. Since this  highlights minor surface flaws, coins often look somewhat better in the hand than their images.

Appearance of these images, like photographs,  does not precisely reproduce the appearance of coins viewed under normal room lighting.  Silver and gold coins normally look very much like their digital images, but bronze coins usually have relatively dark patinas. To show fine detail, their images must be very brightly illuminated and often appear somewhat lighter than the actual coins.

Color of these images may be slightly different than that apparent to your eye, because the spectral sensitivity of the imaging  system is not identical to your retina, and apparent colors often change with the level of illumination.
