A 2,000-year-old gold coin which was used to fund Russian leader Joseph Stalin's huge industrialisation push has sold for a world record price of £4.8m.
Despite dating back to 340-25 BC, the Greek Stater remains in immaculate condition.
The coin has a mythical satyr displayed on one side and the other depicts a griffin with a spear in its beak.
The coin originates from the ancient Greek city of Panticapaeum in modern-day Crimea.
