Twelve Caesars, Emperor Claudius, AD 41-54, Bronze Sestertius
Claudius Bronze Sestertius Choice | NGC | Very Fine
Truly a unique Roman coin, this large bronze coin is called a sestertius and was everyday money that circulated widely across the Roman Empire. This particular coin depicts Emperor Claudius, who ruled from 41-54 AD, in lifelike form facing right, on the obverse.
Roman bronze coins are hard to come by today that have not been altered or impaired in any way, yet, this example has gorgeous coloration and mark-free surfaces on both sides, and just shows even wear. Coin pictured is the exact coin you will receive. Highly recommended.
