Celtic Bronze Ring Money_obv

Celtic Bronze Ring Money

These are very interesting pieces from the 3rd to 2nd Century B.C. We bought a dealer's entire holding of this beautiful Ring Money. Some people say they could go back as far as 800 B.C. but we believe the dealer, who said ‘they are only 3rd-2nd Century B.C.’. It’s thought they were used as a medium of exchange, before the actual issue of coinage in this area. Their size is approx 12-18mm and have been professionally conserved. PRICE IS FOR ONE PIECE ONLY
Diocletian Bronze Antoninianus Fine_obv

Diocletian Bronze Antoninianus Fine

Diocletian was born of humble origin around A.D. 245 in Dalmatia near Split and rose through the ranks of the military to high command. He manoeuvred his way to be emperor of the Roman Empire in A.D. 284 then appointed an old army colleague, Maximian, as co-emperor. Diocletian then settled the problem of succession by appointing two junior Caesars, bringing stability after 60 years of chaos. He spent much of his reign campaigning and overhauled the tax system, reforming the coinage in an attempt to counter inflation. Unlike any emperor before or after he voluntarily abdicated in A.D. 305 and retired to his palace in Split, dying there in A.D. 311. The coins we offer here are Bronze Antoninianus in a Fine grade with various reverses showing gods and goddesses. Own a coin of this pivotal emperor who saved and then paved the way for the survival of the empire.
