Tiberius ruled the Roman Empire from 14-37 AD, during the life and death of Jesus Christ. Coins bearing his likeness are very desirable, particularly when in such a fine state of preservation. This particular coin is well centered and struck with originality and lots of eye appeal. Great coin for the money and a classic rarity from ancient Rome.
Tiberius Gold Aureus NGC CHXF 5×4
This attractive gold 8 Escudo from Chile contains nearly an ounce of gold and is one of under a dozen certified in any condition today. In fact, NGC has seen only five total examples of this super-rare issue, and this is tied for the finest known. We love the value and legitimate rarity in this nearly 250-year old Spanish colonial coin. A reat coin for the price that contains over $1500 just in gold value alone.
