Ancient Rome

roman coins

The span of the Roman Empire lasted from 27 BC until 500 years later with the fall of the Western Roman Empire around 476 AD. The demise was due to many factors including invading barbarians, Christianity displacing the traditional Roman religion, and a complete political collapse. Even though the western half of the empire was defeated, the Eastern Roman Empire continued on for another thousand years in the form of the Byzantine Empire.

Ancient Roman Coins are some of the most popular ancients to collect. There are hundreds of different Roman Coins and even a beginner on a modest budget can find beautiful specimens for their collection that are true works of art.

  • Antonius 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

  • Winged Lion of Cyzicus Electrum Stater NGC Choice Extremely Fine 5x3

    We love the value found in the earliest of all coinage: electrum. Electrum is what coins were made of starting 650 B.C.--it is a naturally occurring mixture of gold and silver and could be found in and around streams and riverbeds. This particular example is 2,500 years and a very rare historic artifact. Lions were often depicted in the earliest coinage, however, this is the first we have seen with wings. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Great coin for the price and one of the earliest coins you will ever encounter. Learn More

  • Caligula Silver Denarius NGC Choice Very Fine 4x5

    As time went on in the Roman Empire, the issuance of silver denarius coins rose dramatically. Early silver denarius coins like this one depicting Caligula are legitimate rarities in any condition--particularly those that have original and beautiful cabinet-toning like the present example. We only handle one or two of these each year, if we're lucky. Caligula reigned for a very short period (37-41 AD) and collectors looking for a nice example of his coinage are often forced to wait for quite some time. This is a coin to put away for a while, for sure. Learn More
