Thracian coins are grouped into the larger rubric of "Greek," just as the Satrapal coins of Asia Minor or Phoenician coins are classified under "Greek." It is factually accurate to sub-divide these coins and make distinctions between these coins and those of Greece proper, but to do so in separate topic sections would make things very unwieldy from a website discussion standpoint.

BTW - your English is quite good.

I would also say that I can't think of any ancient Thracian coins that were not from Greek colonies or from Macedonian occupation! More modern I guess there must be.

I know, I know, Macedonians not Greek either....

Thracian coins are usually lumped together with Greek coins, but Thracians were not Greeks, and neither was their coinage. Coinage by indiginous Thracians in the interior of Thrace began in the late sixth or early fifth century BC, not long after the ancient Greeks first starting minting coins. These early Thracian coins were minted by tribes such as the Derroni, Orescii, Bisaltae, Ichnae, and Edoni. Later, upon the emergence of the Odrysae, the most powerful Thracian tribe, indiginous Thracian coins were dominated by those minted by Odrysaen king, which included over a period of some centuries Sparadokos, Seuthes I, Teres III, Kotys I, Seuthes III, and Kotys II.

It is true that much so-called Thracian coinage came from Greek colonies in Thrace along the Black Sea and northern Aegean Sea, including Abdera, Maroneia, Ainos, Lysimacheia, Cherronesos, Byzantion, Apollonia Pontika, Mesembria, Odessos, Kallatis, Tomis, Istros, and Thasos. Interestingly, there's some overlap between these Greek city coins and the Thracian tribal coins, with some of the Greek issues imitated by nearby Thracian tribes.

Those didn't work for me when I clicked on them, so I've uploaded them.

That side is even more stunning than the other.

Looks like it needs a good professional cleaning. If it's the only example and given the artistry, I suspect 30-40K Euro is a fair guess on its value.
