In the Bronze Age, the city known as Troy or Truva, also referred to as Ilion (in Greek) or Ilium (in Latin) during the Ancient Age,
was located at the foot of Mount Ida (Kaz Mountains) within the borders of Çanakkale province. The historical region where the city was located was called Troas during the Ancient Age.

Excavations conducted in the city of Troy revealed numerous layers due to its being founded nine times in the same location during different periods. This complex historical and archaeological structure of the city indicates a chronological sequence ranging from 3000 BC to the 1st century AD. In addition to its significant historical findings, the ancient city of Troy is known as the setting for the Trojan War, which is the subject of Homer's epic poem, the Iliad. The Trojan War, a conflict depicted in Greek mythology, revolves around the Greek (Achaean) invasion of the Anatolian city of Troy following the abduction of Helen, the wife of the Spartan king Menelaus, by the Trojan prince Paris.

The Talking Coins "Coin Collection" features the Troy Panel, which combines various scenes depicting the Trojan War depicted on various types of vessels from the Ancient Age, collaged and used as a pattern. In the center of the Troy Panel, figures taken from a bronze coin depicting the Trojan War minted during the Roman Empire period in Ilion (formerly known as Troy) are adapted onto glass. The coin features a scene of Trojan hero Hector throwing a torch at the Akhaean ships while holding a shield (with the inscription "Hector - of the Ilionites"). All the designs on the Troy Panel are decorated using handmade craftsmanship with 24-carat gold leaf gilding..
