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.

  • Roman Commemorative (She Wolf) Constantinian 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 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

  • Hound of Cyzicus Electrum Stater NGC Choice Very Fine 4x5

    Absolutely amazing coin and desirable by so many types of collectors, as far as we know this is the earliest depiction of a domesticated animal on human coinage. Struck around 2,550 years ago this 17-gram electrum full stater depicts a hound running left in lifelike fashion atop the totem animal for Mysia, the tunny (tuna fish). If you're looking for an amazing piece of history and a truly rare artifact to put away for a while, this is a tough item to beat. 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. The coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Learn More
