A misconception about ancient coin values is that the older coins will be worth more money. After all, why wouldn't a coin thousands of years old be worth a lot of money? The truth is, because many ancient coins have surfaced over the years, they are common in the coin collecting industry, and therefore not unreasonably priced. Modern day occurrences like construction and the use of metal detectors have unearthed numerous ancient coins over the years. With the discovery of so many pieces, ancient coin values remain affordable for the most part today. As with every type of coin, you can always find pieces worth much more than others, but as long as the supply overwhelms demand, coin collectors can enjoy the purchase of ancient coins at lower prices.
