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

  • Syria Augustus Silver Tetradrachm NGC Choice Extremely Fine 5X4

    One of the larger, more attractive silver designs you will encounter and a solid value for the price, in our opinion. Augustus was one of the more noteworthy early rulers of Ancient Rome and higher-end coins bearing his likeness, like this one, are in very high demand. The size is similar to that of a modern silver dollar. Augustus is considered the founder of the Roman empire and had the longest reign of 41 years, starting from 27 B.C. to 14 A.D. He was quite productive in expanding the realm and strengthened infrastructure by developing a standing army, police force, a courier system and a fire department. For the money, we love the overall look of the coin and it circulated around the time that Jesus was born, making it highly desirable to many types of collectors. recommended for the price and just a great coin in all regards!
