An update with an addition of two more Earth coins found with interesting similarities

37453q00.jpg

The second coin is of Helios see here for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helios
His left eye is shown as brighter in many of the coins of him, strange coincidence....

Thanks Chandre, I like Dr. Skipper's work and I really think there's something eerie going on in Mars. smile

Your analysis is inspirational. I am still pondering the size of the coins on Earth as well as the glyphs on the Mars 'coin'. They are clear in the image below and there are some similarities with ancient Earth scripts so I will post an update when I have something more concrete. confuse

Chandre, great report and great comparisons.  This is really intriguing.  I agree this object is very tiny.  The Martian "blue berries" are said to be about the size of a BB for a BB Gun, as another comparison point.  Keep up the excellent work!

Wow Chandre, this is simply amazing, excellent post. I did not know ancient coins so small ever existed. Half a centimeter in diameter?? One must have really small hands to handle them smile And with such a detailed relief on them, did the ancients have magnifying glasses?

OK, I am going to have to start believing in a Liliputian race on Mars. (Only joking as after much research there seems to have been similar race on Earth)

The RAT circular measurement is 4.5cm, which means this 'coin' is tiny. I am not sure of the exact size (maybe someone can help) but I find the detail fascinating.

I see a face, but I guess that would be normal. In an attempt to understand what I am looking at I did some homework on ancient earth coins that are similar but larger of course.

I came across some coins that were similar from the city of Idyma which was part of the Caria civilisation. Not much is know about this civilisation but by the looks of the coins they were minting they seem to have been fascinating !

Two in particular caught my eye in comaprison to the Mars ones, the others are just being included for interests sake

Are those glyphs on the bottem right of the coin ?

The following is included as a footnote just because its interesting ....

Other Caria/Idyma cons and a bit of history

The man appearing to be swimming with a dolphin on the coins seems to be significant..

http://www.snible.org/coins/hn/caria.html

The boy and dolphin as a coin-type of the Iasians is mentioned by Aelian (Hist. Anim., vi. 15), Plutarch (De solert. Anim., 36) and Pollux (ix. 84). The story of the love of a dolphin for a youth of Iasus, who is called Hermias by Plutarch and Pliny (N. H., ix. 8), and Dionysius by Athenaeus (xiii. 606), may have had an historical basis, for Alexander the Great is said to have ordered the boy to be sent to his court.

Idyma, at the head of the Ceramic gulf, is mentioned several times in the Athenian Quota-Lists. In B. M. C., Caria, p. lxi, some archaic drachms of Aeginetic weight are conjecturally assigned to this town, but its earliest inscribed coins are drachms and smaller silver coins of the Phoenician standard which seem to range from about B.C. 450-400.


Absolutely tiny Greek and Phoenician silver coins and a bit of history

http://dougsmith.ancients.info/tiny.html

Very small denominations meant very small coins. The most common small denomination was the obol (1/6th drachm) weighing around .8g. Pictured below are eight coins each valued at less than one obol. Different issuing authorities issued coins on different weight standards and it is not always certain what to call a certain denomination. The artwork on these tiny coins is every bit as great as the larger issues and, considering their size, the detail is amazing.

The photo shows the coin resting on a US cent for size. The two sides were photographed on the same cent with the halves joined in the software. While this coin is my smallest in diameter, its greater thickness causes it to weigh more that the Syracuse hexas

Another coinage system that left us small silver was that of Phoenicia. This 9mm, .7g coin of King Adramelek of Byblos (Gebal) was a 1/8 shekel bears a complete legend in Phoenician. Catalogs list the types as a galley sailing above a hippocamp on the obverse and a lion attacking a bull on the reverse. Larger denominations do look more like a bull than this coin which almost seems to show a goat. This is a lot of detail to fit in so small a space so we can understand that what seems to be a minor variation is probably accidental. The same coin is available in a large (and popular) dishekel that shows even more detail.
