U.S. to put Restrictions on Import of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic coins from Libya

18 Dec 2017  Mon

Libya received import restrictions for different kinds of coins entering the US as per the 1970 UNESCO Convention. The restriction is applied for a five-year period until 30th May 2022. Ancient Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic and Ottoman coins are included in the new rule.

Efforts are being taken by a lawyer to respect both ends. Some experts believe that these restrictions are a result of over-hyped fears of illicit antiquities funding terrorism. There are many other experts who support these restrictions.
