Caligula 37-41 coins

Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, commonly referred to as simply Caligula, was the emperor of Rome from the year 37 to 41. Coins were made for him, as with most ancient Roman rulers, and with Caligula's reputation these days, his coins have many fans in the collector world. There can be authentic and modern reproductions of ancient CALIGVLA coins for sale at any given time in sales listings; whichever type of Caligula coin you are looking for, there is probably someone selling it if you look hard enough through the current offers. Remember, however, that Caligula only ruled a short time before being assassinated, and there may not be as many Caligula coins for sale as there are for, as an example, his grand uncle Tiberius, who ruled before him, or even his uncle successor Claudius


Trajan 98-117 coins

Trajan, full name Imperator Caesar Nerva Traianus Divi Nervae filius Augustus, ruled over the Roman Empire from the death of Nerva in 98 until 117 AD. The coins of Trajan are extensive and there are many different types available for different buyers; there are so many types of Trajan coins and ways to approach them that many collectors choose a specific subset of them that appeals in some way. Trajan was the adopted son of Nerva and ruled for nineteen years. His own adopted son, the famous Hadrian, took over upon Trajan's natural death in 117. Take a look at the current selection of Trajan coins available to get an idea of the scope of what is available in the marketplace


Titus 79-81 coins

Titus, full imperial name Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus, was the son of Vespasian and the ruler of the Roman Empire from 79 AD until dying from the plague in 81. After his death, Titus' brother Domitian became emperor. Although his reign was short, Titus made coins that are often seen for sale in online coin markets. Some nice examples of authentic ancient Titus coins from 79-81 can be seen in current sales offers; also, interested collectors may find some modern replicas for sale for a fraction of the cost

As coins

Buy as coins (plural: asses) here in this section of; we have split them up between Roman Republic asses and Roman Empire asses. Note that an ancient Republican as may be more scarce, but not necessarily more expensive, than an imperial as. The as was first produced in 280 BC, and around 221 BC became the standard denomination in Rome — other coins made after this date were usually named by their worth in asses. (For example, "semis" means "half", and the coin called semis was worth half an as.) The coins were made until Diocletian's coinage reforms in the 280s AD. Early asses showed the two-faced god Janus; later as coins showed the emperor's bust. "As" in other languagesIn most languages that might be found in these as for sale listings, the word is the same as English; an exception is Italian, where it is "asse"
