Siculo-Punic issue of the Carthaginians in Sicily 300 B.C.

The Punic Wars were a series of wars fought by Rome and Carthage between 264 BCE and 146 BCE. Western Mediterranean control was at the center of the wars.

The Punic Tetradrachm Coin was a silver coin that the Carthaginians minted in Sicily during the Punic Wars in the 4th and 3rd centuries BCE.
The Carthaginians modeled the coin after the Greek tetradrachm, a widely used currency in the ancient Mediterranean world. They were mainly used to pay for supplies and the military for the war effort against Rome.
