Elizabeth II, £2 2021 Gold BU

Our wholesaler offered us very few pieces of the 2021 Royal Mint £2 gold piece. They are beautiful in Prooflike Uncirculated condition but there is one little problem… He told us that he didn’t think that they would be getting any more, so he sold us all he had at the time, and he said that was all he thought they were ever going to get... His price was £40 more per coin than last year, but we still feel it was excellent value at only £895 which is about what two of the more common single gold sovereigns would cost. But please remember we have just 5 pieces available at this price or in fact any price. Please don’t miss out, limit one per collector to give all our collectors an equal chance...

Crispus, Centenionalis Mint State_obv

Crispus, Centenionalis 'Cent' Mint State

Flavius Julius Crispus was born around A.D. 300, the eldest son of Constantine the Great by his first wife Minervina. Made Caesar in A.D. 317 he ruled from Augusta Treverorum (Trier) in Roman Gaul between 318 and 323. Crispus had a very successful military career, his greatest achievement was perhaps defeating the navy of Licinius I at the Battle of the Hellespont in A.D. 324. His victory in battle, together with the victory achieved by his father on land at the Battle of Chrysopolis, forced the resignation of Licinius and his son. At this point in time Crispus was all but heir to the throne. But in A.D. 326 while accompanying Constantine to Rome to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his ascension, Crispus was mysteriously executed on the orders of his father… One theory is that his stepmother, the Empress Fausta, engineered it for her own son’s (Constantine II) advancement. The other theory was put forward by the Late Greek historian Zosimus, and the Byzantine Greek writer Joannes Zonaras, who wrote that Constantine had accused Crispus of incest with his stepmother and had him executed. Regardless of the reasons that lead Constantine the Great to condemn his own son to death, two things we know to be historical facts: Empress Fausta was executed shortly after on the orders of her husband, and a “Damnatio Memoriae” was then performed for Cripsus. ''Damnation Memoriae'' is a modern name as we don't know what the Romans called this action. But we know it was effectively a condemnation of one’s memory, meaning that a person is to be excluded from official accounts. This means his coins are quite Scarce and remain some of the best sources of information for him being Caesar. The coin on offer here is a Centenionalis of Crispus in mint state and is a part of a group of mint state coins that Josh bought, which also includes Constantine the Great and Constantine II Centenionalis. These Crispus coins are an incredible find considering what happened after the execution…
