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.

    Called the “tribute penny” in the Bible, this is listed on page 85 of the 100 Greatest coins, ranked as #50.

  • Domitian Silver Denarius NGC Choice About Uncirculated Star 5x4

    Emperor Domitian ruled from 81 - 96 AD and was the last of the "Twelve Emperors of Rome". He was the younger brother of Titus, his predecessor and he restored the economy by revaluing Roman coinage, rebuilding the city, and fortifying the border defenses. As emperor he was loved by his army but hated by the aristocracy. His reign came to an end in 96 AD when he was assassinated. His coinage is surprisingly difficult to find in high grades, and this choice AU example has an incredible overall look and has been awarded a star for eye appeal by NGC Ancients. The obverse shows the emperor in lifelike fashion and the coin has gorgeous cabinet toning. The reverse is unlike most denarii--and shows a handshake. Great coin for the price and highly recommended in such a high condition. Learn More

  • Silver Tyre Half Shekel NGC Choice Very Fine Lifetime

    This half-shekel from the City of Tyre is a very popular issue as it was produced during the lifetime of Jesus and circulated around where he lived. Most Shekels are very crudely produced and oftentimes off-struck, particularly those issue during this period in time. This is one of only a handful of shekels that we've handled from this time-frame and it is totally original and quite beautiful for the assigned grade. This is the exact coin you'll receive and we have only one available. Learn More

It is a very desired coin that collectors as well as investors look for. The reverse of this Mint State beauty depicts ruler Justinian II. This is very special in its importance as a religious and historical coin. Learn More

  • Galba Silver Tetradrachm NGC Choice Very Fine 4x3

    We absolutely love this coin and NGC agrees, giving the coin the coveted Fine Style designation. Even though it has been graded in Choice very fine, this coin has an amazing strike and phenomenal detail. It depicts the emperor facing right, in lifelike fashion, while the back depicts a perched eagle, facing left. Galba ruled for a very short time period, from 68-69 AD and coins issued under him can be tough to find today, particularly rarer denominations like this large silver tetradrachm. Learn More

  • Galba Silver Quinarius NGC Very Fine 5x2

    Here we have a relatively inexpensive, lightly circulated silver coin struck under Emperor Galba, who ruled from 68-69 AD--a very short time. Because of his short rule, coins bearing his likeness are relatively difficult to find, particularly scarce denominations like this silver quinarius. Learn More

  • Nero Silver Denarius NGC Choice Very Fine Star 5x5

    Very attractive, evenly worn silver denarius of Emperor Nero, one of the most despised rulers in Roman history. Learn More

  • Justinian II Gold Solidus 2nd Reign NGC Mint State 4x4

    Clipped at the mint due to being overweight after being struck, this is a remarkable coin with incredible detail. It is the second depiction of Christ on a coin, second only to the first reign Justinian example from a decade prior. The obverse depicts a "younger" version of Christ. These are prominently listed in the 100 Greatest Ancient coins books. Learn More
