  • Antoninus Pius Silver Denarius NGC XF

    We believe these 1,800 year old Roman Denarii are excellent values for the price. Antoninus Pius (138-161 AD), was the father of Marcus Aurelius. Rome was at it's greatest during this timeframe and these authentic Roman silver denarii are well struck and nicely preserved. Coin shown is not the actual coin you will receive, but the quality and look you can expect. Learn More

  • Diocletian BI Nummus NGC CH AU

    Diocletain was a Roman Emperor from 284 to 305 A.D. From humble beginnings, he rose through the military ranks and became emperor of Rome, stabilizing the empire, marking the end of the Crisis of the Third Century. Due to illness, he resigned from rule in 305 yet his amazingly high-quality Bronze coins have survived the test of time. Each coin in this offering has been certified in About Uncirculated condition with remarkable detail on both the front and back of the coin. The obverse depicts a proud and strong bust of Diocletian facing right, and they are large--bigger than a modern silver half-dollar. If you're looking for a superb gift or great entry-point into the ancient coin market, these are tough to beat for the money. Learn More

  • Septimus Severus Silver Denarius NGC Extremely Fine

    This 1800 year old silver coin depicts the emperor's bust on the obverse with various implements on the reverse. We are of the opinion that attractive, low-priced Roman Silver is a fantastic value in today's marketplace because of the ability to put together sets for reasonable overall prices. This particular coin depicts Septimus Severus who ruled from 193 to 211. Really a nice group for the price and a fantastic gift or collectible investment. Coin shown may not be the actual coin you receive, however, this image is very typical of the quality you can expect when ordering. Great coin for the price and highly recommended. Learn More

  • Crucifixion Period Roman Nail and Widows Mite Set

    One of the great things about our business is coming into contact with truly remarkable historical artifacts with legitimate collector appeal. Each of these Crucifixion-Era sets contains an original Roman iron nail and an authentic biblical widow's mite coin--both attractively framed in a black matte floating box--all for under $100. The 'Widow's Mite' is a small bronze coin from ancient Judaea which was minted during the Hasmonean Dynasty of 140-37 BC. It is mentioned in the Bible in Mark 12:41-44 and Luke 21:1-4: "He sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, 'Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood." The nail comes from the Roman fortress at Inchtuthil, which was the northernmost Roman fortress in England/Scotland. It was likely commissioned in about 82 A.D. by Gnaeus Julius Agricola in his fight against the Caledonian tribes. When it was excavated in the 1950s by Sir Ian Richmond, a large pit was found in the summer of 1960 containing 875,400 complete iron nails ranging from 2-16 inches and weighing 7 tons. The pit was elaborately concealed, and the nails and ironwork were almost certainly buried by the troops to prevent their use in weaponsmithing by the local tribes when they dismantled the fortress before they finally left. Many of the nails were sent to museums as a gift and the rest of the hoard was sold to the public and other interested organizations with an offer of 5 shillings for an 8 to 10-inch nail and 25 shillings for a boxed set of 5 nails. While these nails could not have been used in the crucifixion of Jesus under Pontius Pilate, they are of the same type and manufacture as those that would have been used. The frame's exterior dimensions measure 4" X 4" X 1.5" and it has a strong but pliable film which secures the nail and coin in place. They can be easily removed and handled and replaced in the frame. The frame will stand nicely on your desk or bookshelf. Learn More

  • Constantine Bronze BI Nummus NGC MS

    Emperor Constantine I is often credited with converting the Roman Empire to Christianity. In fact, though he ended the persecution of Christians and eventually converted, some historians debate the true nature of his faith.After unifying the Roman Empire under his rule in A.D. 324, Constantine rebuilt his seat of his power in largely Christian Byzantium, which was renamed Constantinople and today is Istanbul. The growth of a Christian ruling class under Constantine ensured the faith's increasing and enduring prominence through the Roman, and later Byzantine, Empire. These bronze coins were minted under his heir, Constantine II, between 337-361 A.D. and have been preserved in an uncirculated condition. They have been graded by NGC to be mint state, and all design detail is centered and extremely evident on both sides. If you're looking for a great gift or new addition to your collection without breaking the bank, have a look at these while we have them. Only ten available. Learn More
