As far as I know of, there isn't any universal way to write up a description for these coins. It just depends on how ones wishes to present such a coin.

But anyways, the ID for it is below. I would estimate its value to be around $25 to $45, factoring in the value of the coin which I would put around $30, and the rest based on your reputation, which should give some incentive and 'added value'.

If possible, would you be able to include any original info that came with the coin [if any], as it greatly speeds up ID requests.

Anyways:

Est: $30 to $50.

For Greek coins, while I don't specialize in them, I could try to take a look. ID might be a bit more time consuming, but I can give a rough estimate for them.

Quite a nice looking coin, though it is what could be regarded as one of the most common coins of the Roman Empire, it can be roughly valued around $10-20 USD.

I will get the exact details tomorrow, but the coin on the right would be Severus Septimius, and on the left, either Trajan or Hadrian. I would say the one on the left has a value of around $25-50, while the other one $25-35.

Would you mind if from now on I had used such a format below for IDs for your coins. It still has the essential bits, emperor, inscription, and description.


Septimius Severus. Rome Mint 196 AD. Obverse: L SEPT SEV PERT AVG IMP VIII laureate head right. Reverse: ADVENTVI AVG FELICISSIMO Severus on horseback riding right, raising right hand. RIC IV: 74

For the Hadrian coin, I am not too sure if the inscriptions are accurate, as there are quite a few varieties. However, I believe, following the link to the left of this post, it is quite acceptable to just exclude the inscription, seeing as V Coins quite a prestigious site that deals in Ancient coins.

Hadrian Denarius. IMP CAESAR TRAIAN HADRIANVS AVG, laureate bust right, draped far shoulder / P M TR P COS III, Roma seated left holding Victory & scepter. RIC 77

I can't accurately ID this coin, so the description might be a bit different, though from a rough valuation, it be around $15-30 USD.
