For a period lasting hundreds of years, the Roman Empire was the most powerful force in the world. At its peak, the Empire spanned 3 continents, encompassing not only all of the Mediterranean but also Britain, North Africa, most of continental Europe and the Middle East. The Empire was so huge and long-lived that ancient Roman coins are still plentiful and affordable today. Owning an ancient bronze or silver Roman coin is like holding a little piece of history in your hand.
We offer a fine selection of authentic ancient Roman coins. While most of our coins come from the Roman Empire, we occasionally offer some rarer coins from the Empire's predecessor, the Roman Republic. We include small biographies of the relevant emperors in each of our product listings, in order to give you an idea of the men who fought and died over control of the ancient world's most powerful empire. And like all of our coins, these ancients are guaranteed authentic for life.
Apart from selling coins, one of our main goals is to promote historical learning and help collectors gain knowledge about the past. On our blog, the Silver Dollar Scoop, you'll find regular articles on famous Romans and the coins they left behind. And like always, if you have any questions (about either coins or ancient history!) please contact us at email@example.com and we'll be happy to help you out.
