Hixenbaugh Ancient Art will be exhibiting its collection of ancient coins
and a representative sample of its desirable ancient objects at this year’s
convention. Ancient coins are highly collectible for their direct ties to
the past as well as their artistic appeal. Ancient coins were not merely
used to facilitate commerce but also to spread propaganda. Much thought was
given to the meaning behind the imagery on ancient coinage. As such, the
coins were very artfully designed. Much information about ancient cultures
can be gleaned from reading and interpreting ancient coins. In addition to
ancient coins, several newly acquired ancient Greek helmets, as well as many
other fine quality ancient objects, will also be on display.
Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is participating in this fair for its 9th consecutive
year and is pleased for the opportunity to exhibit once again. Gallery
director, Randall Hixenbaugh stated, “The New York International Numismatic
Convention is a great way to start to the new year. Ancient Coins provide us
with a unique glimpse into the traditions and beliefs of ancient cultures as
interesting miniature works of art that passed through the hands of our
ancient ancestors.” Our coins as well as many other important antiquities
are on view and available at our New York gallery (Tuesday – Saturday 11am –
6pm) and can be viewed on our web site (http://www.hixenbaugh.net).

At Hixenbaugh Ancient Art, we believe that responsible collecting of
antiquities is not only a pleasurable pursuit and wise investment, but an
important responsibility. Today's collectors are custodians of the past,
links in a chain, preserving the past for future generations by passing
their collections on to their heirs, reselling them to eager collectors, or
donating them to museums. In doing so, the collector of ancient art reaps
the many benefits of acquiring truly unique and thought provoking objects
that have come down to us from the ancients, whose influences pervade every
aspect of the modern world.
