About us

I myself have been a collector of ancient coins and classical art for nearly a decade and have decided to share my enthusiasm for the field by offering high-quality material, both at fixed prices and in internet auctions. To this end, I have enlisted the help and support of several individuals with long histories of involvement in numismatics to assemble the site and create the entries. In their combined experience of more than sixty years in the trade, they have been responsible for numerous scholarly and commercial publications.

I invite you to take a good look at my initial offerings of superior items in a broad spectrum of prices. Ordering and payment (by PayPal) are simple and can be accomplished by simply following the prompts as found on the site directory.

Our first internet auction is forthcoming. Please check the website often for updates on that sale and to view new additions which I plan to add regularly.

In order to maintain and enhance the supply of material, I have the continuous need to buy quality ancient coins and art and will pay the best prices possible for top-shelf items. I am also in a position to accept consignments for direct sale or auction. So, if you have nice ancient coins or provenanced antiquities, please contact me as soon as possible with the details and provide images!

I hope to get to know you and look forward to doing business with you. If you have any questions at all or just want to let me know what your interests are, please do not hesitate to contact me via email: octaviocoins@tavio.com

Yours sincerely,
Tavio Fontes
