Undoubtedly, Parthian coins are considered to be one of the important sources in history of Iran during 3rd century B.C. till end of Parthian empire (224 A.D.). For more than 400 years, these coins provide information about the kings, mint houses, eco-political conditions, clothes etc. for that time. In this research, the PIXE results of 9 Drachma coins belong to  Gozartes II and 6 coins belong to Khausro II are given. Different percentages in coins were observed. Eco-political analysis of Parthian era shows that high silver percentage in Gozartes II coins implies the good economical conditions in his period, and less silver percentage in Khausro II coins implies the economical weakness of his period due to 5-years war between Iran and Rome, which led to defeat of Iran.
