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.

  • Septimus Severus Silver Denarius NGC Extremely Fine

    Struck between 98-117 AD, 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

  • Roman Commemorative (She Wolf) Constantinian Choice Mint State

    Rome, it was said, was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus. Of course, this was a myth; the city's "foundation myth." In this account, Romulus and Remus were the children of the god Mars and a vestal, Rhea Silvia, a descendant of Aeneas. As babies, they were exposed in the wild, and were suckled by a wolf. Later, when they decided to found a city, they argued about which hill was better, and in the quarrel, Remus was killed. This bronze coin is original and dates back nearly 1700 years--it's a commemorative coin to celebrate the foundation of Rome. It has been preserved in a very high choice-mint condition and clearly depicts two babies underneath a mother wolf. Coin shown may not be the coin you receive but indicative of the quality you can expect. 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
