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 currency for most of Roman history consisted of gold, silver, bronze, orichalcum and copper coinage (see: Roman metallurgy). From its introduction to the Republic, during the third century BC, well into Imperial times, Roman currency saw many changes in form, denomination, and composition.ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive.
