Historic Roman Coins

Roman Coins are some of the most prestigious in the world. Even among those who are not collectors, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who has never heard of a Roman Denarius. These coins come from the hands of Ancient Romans into your collection!

How Roman Coins Were Made

Roman coinage, as well as most other ancient coinage, was created by hand. Artists would engrave a designs into a thick bronze disks that would fit into an anvil. They would then engrave a design at the end of a punch. Blanks of metal, primitive versions of what Mints use today, would be placed on the anvil die and a punch placed over that. Finally, the workman would strike the punch with a hammer, usually multiple times. The end result are the ancient Roman coins we see today.

History of Roman Coinage

Ancient Roman Coins are thick with history. First produced during the Roman Republic, the coinage expanded and grew during the course of the civilization. Despite the impressive precious metal content of early issues, coinage was steadily debased Emperor after Emperor. Because of the size of the Roman Empire, coinage was circulated all across Europe and much of the known world. Many of these coins have survived until today in impressive condition. These serve not only as prized commemoratives, but also as artifacts of ancient Rome. Many Emperors had such brief reigns that no depictions through statues or busts were created. For these Emperors, the coinage issued during their brief reigns is the only way we know what they looked like.
