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.

  • Constantius II NGC Mint State

    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

  • 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".

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
