Struck two years after the assassination of Julius Caesar, this excessively rare posthumous silver denarius offers you the chance to own a portrait coin of one of the most important figures of recorded history.

When the conspirators plunged their knives into Caesar in 44BC, they believed they were restoring the Roman Republic, and freeing the people of a despicable, power-hungry dictator. Little did they know, their murderous actions ensured the death of the republic, set Rome on an inevitable path to autocratic empire and guaranteed that their victim would be lauded as among the greatest Romans – as evidenced by the excessively rare coin before you.

Indicative of the esteem in which Caesar was held after his death, this coin was issued under the authority of the moneyer Mussidius Longus in 42BC – the year Caesar was deified by the Senate. Bearing Caesar’s distinctive wreathed portrait on the obverse with contemporary banker’s marks, the coin is graded Fine.

Excessively rare, we have just one example of this Julius Caesar portrait type available – click add to cart now!
