Roman Coins date back to the 4th century BC around the year 326. By then Rome was still a Republic composed of two consuls, assemblies of the people, magistrates who were elected by the people, and a senate that advised magistrates.
It was during the time of the Roman Republic, that Rome first expanded from the city’s immediate surroundings to hegemony over the Mediterranean world. Some very interesting Ancient Roman Coins were minted during this period. Including many Republican Denarius depicting Rome’s founders, Romulus and Remus, being suckled by a she-wolf.
Coins were symbols of power in Imperial times and were often used to disseminate the Emperor’s image across the empire as having god-like status. Julius Caesar was the first Roman to issue coins bearing his own portrait. He started a trend that many roman emperors would soon follow, including his great-nephew Augustus, the infamous Commodus, and the cruel Caligula.

Hadrian was one of the ablest and conscientious of the Roman Emperors.

Late in the ‘Crisis of the Third Century’ Britain & Northern France did not have enough regular coinage so the locals took matters into their own hands! Recent research shows the new, superior silver coin of Aurelian were being saved and not used, so for about 11 years (A.D. 275-286) crude, bronze coins were made locally to ‘top up’ the coins in circulation. They copied old types from Gallienus, Postumus, Claudius II (to name a few) but the quality of the designs varied hugely as they were made by normal people risking death for ‘counterfeiting’. We have a group of these ‘Barbarous Radiates’ that all show a head on the obverse and different reverses, but as they are crudely made, the first to order will get the best. Add to your collection an ancient coin of the people who risked death just to help out their local area, a local coin for local people!
