It is an incredible honor to hold a genuine piece of history in your hands. As a tangible link to the ancient past it is assuring to know that that the coin you are holding has been examined by a professional in the field, which is what you get with each and every coin that we sell.

Along with a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity that comes with all coins, we also send a Certificate of Authenticity with a color image of the coin that you’ve purchased, printed on archival safe acid-free paper.

In an effort to aid you in preserving your coins, we also send all coins in a PVC-free archival safe flip that’s suitable for long term storage.

Sestertius Nero “Roma Seated on Arms”

8,000.00 USD

  • Catalog: RC0002g
  • Weight: 23.31 g
  • Diameter: 35.00 mm

Obverse: IMP NERO CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG GER PM TR P P P Laureate head right with slight drapery on shoulder. Reverse: Roma seated left on pile of arms, holding spear and victory: S-C to sides; ROMA in exergue. RIC: 336 corr (RIC does not note the drapery on shoulder). Gorgeous natural brown-green patina and a very rare variety! This issue is rare because of the obverse legends, which include the entire “CLAVDIVS” name. RIC does not list the slight drapery on the shoulder, but I believe that this was probably extant on the scant specimens that RIC observed but was not noted.
