The Nectanebo gold stater is a gold stater used in Ancient Egypt during the reign of Nectanebo II from 360 to 342 BC. It was most likely used as a payment for military personnel.

The coin was composed of solid gold and was circular in shape. The reverse of the coin features a horse reared back on its legs, while the reverse has two hieroglyphs, in ligature, the necklace of gold and the symbol for beauty, making a symbol meaning "perfect" or "fine gold".
