Excerpt The study presents 38 gold and platinum coins from the Treasure Collection of the Museum of Oltenia. The coins are very diverse, from issues of the Hellenistic states and the Roman Empire, to issues of the Kingdom of Spain, the Archdiocese of Salzburg or the Ottoman Empire. Remarkable from the point of view of rarity are the two staters of the Alexander the Great type and Lysimachus, issued by Byblos and Byzantium (cat. No. 1-2). Also, worth mentioning are the four hyperpers of the John III Ducas type, emperor of Nicaea (cat. No. 17-20). This type of coin is controversial in academia, with intense discussions about the delimitation of genuine issues by those "Latin" imitations struck by the crusading states, the Venetians or the Genoese. Medieval and modern issues are relatively common, with the exception of coins from Ferdinand III and Maria Theresia (cat. No. 27-28), which are numismatic rarities. The same can be said about the quarter of a duchy issued by the Archdiocese of Salzburg or coins of 3 and 6 rubles of platinum, which are for the first time reported in a public collection in Romania.
