Coinage from this era, even though these coins were struck over 2,000 years ago, is a tangible and impressive reminder of the greatness of Rome. Coinage was not only struck as a means for commerce but also as propaganda to spread messages of their current leader across the vast empire.

The primary coins of the era were the Gold Aureus, the Silver Denarius, and copper coins of various sizes. Typically Roman coinage had an image of the emperor on the obverse. On the reverse deities like Mars the god of war, or Venus the goddess of love,– would adorn the coins. One of the most famous and desirable coins in human history the Ides Of March Silver Denarius, was struck by Brutus after he and others assassinated Julius Caesar on the steps of the Roman Capitol.

Bronze coins were struck in different sizes worth different values-- with the most popular and impressive coin referred to as a Sestertius. Silver coins were issued by Ancient Rome, with the most popular size called a denarius. They also issued Double Denarii, worth twice the value of a normal denarius.

Prices start as low as a hundred dollars for circulated more common issues, while higher-end rarities can bring five or six figures depending upon their quality and rarity.
