Coins from Ancient Rome are incredibly popular today. They were struck primarily in gold, silver, and bronze and oftentimes depict the emperor who was in power when the coins were issued.

Coins of the Roman empire can vary widely in price and quality, offering collectors lots of options. All coins offered by Austin Rare Coins & Bullion are certified and graded by NGC Ancients. (Download Your 8 Page Ancient Coin Buyers Guide)

  • Trajan Silver Denarius NGC Choice Very Fine

    Struck between 98-117 AD, this 1900 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. 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

  • 54 B.C. Coson Gold Stater Mint State NGC

    Certified by NGC in Mint State condition! Struck over 2,000 years ago of 9 grams of nearly pure gold, the obverse features three consuls in procession, while the reverse features an eagle holding a wreath. Ancient history scholars have put forth two versions of the origin of the Coson Stater: The first version purports that Brutus, the assassin who betrayed Julius Caesar, struck the coins using gold treasure provided by the Roman Senate. In this version of the story the staters were used to pay troops provided by the Thracian King Coson to defend the Republic from troops loyal to Julius Caesar. The second version surmises that these staters were imitating a popular Roman silver denarius of the time, struck under Brutus. While the precise origin of the Coson Stater remains a mystery, perhaps a greater mystery is how any coin of this age has maintained such a high state of preservation over the past 2,000 years. Only six available, coin pictured may not be the coin you receive but is certainly indicative of the quality you can expect. Highly recommended. Learn More

  • Tyre Silver 1/2 Shekel NGC Choice Very Fine 4x4

    Struck during the lifetime of Christ, this is a very rare and desirable silver half-shekel. as such. Over the past five years, we have handled only one other example (in a lower grade, too), so half-shekels from this time-frame are few and far between. They're typically not centered on the obverse, as is this example, however, the reverse is much higher than the overall grade may imply. Great coin for the price and in high demand from collectors who own full shekels of this time frame. The coin pictured is the exact coin you will receive. Only one available. Learn More
