THE HISTORY AND COINAGE OF THE ROMAN IMPERATORS 49-27 BC by David
The brief period covered in this book witnessed the violent transition of the Roman state from a republican constitution, presided over by the Senate, to a full military autocracy under the control of one man, the Emperor . In reality, the events of these years were merely the culmination of a movement which had been gathering strength over the preceding half-century, since the rise of men such as and . had put events into motion by his invasion of Italy and his challenge to Pompey's dominant position in Roman politics. With his assassination on the Ides of March, 44 B.C., Caesar's role was inherited by his youthful great-nephew who, against seemingly hopeless odds, succeeded in eliminating his rivals for supreme power, notably and his ambitious consort , queen of . This book traces in detail the unfolding of this drama. Each of its six chapters includes a comprehensive catalogue listing of all the relevant coin types and varieties, each with a full discussion of its significance in the interpretation of the events of the period. Information on the rarity of each , including estimates of current value, is presented in a separate table. The numerous, though less precisely understood, local coinages of the Imperatorial period are listed in an extensive appendix. Whilst providing a comprehensive numismatic reference for the age of transition from Republic to Empire the author has also aimed to heighten the historian's awareness of the vital role which may be played by the numismatic evidence in the detailed chronicling of event.BK43171.

Greater emphasis is now placed on the precise chronology and place of mintage of each and extensive coverage is given to the important series of and bronze coins struck at over a period of more than 300 years. The valuations have been exhaustively researched from recent auction records and fixed catalogues and many professional numismatists have contributed their valuable opinions on specific series. Prices (both in British pounds and US dollars) are now expressed in either two or three grades of preservation for each entry, usually VF and EF for precious metal issues, and F, VF and EF for Imperial Bronzes. Perhaps most importantly for the collector, the number of photographic illustrations in the text has been increased, and their quality improved.

Dynasty AD 96 - AD 235 by David
Volume II extends coverage of the from , the thirteenth and first of the , down to the overthrow of the dynasty in 235. It encompasses what may justifiably be termed the golden age of the Roman imperial coinage. The full development of the Augustan system of coin and perfection of the method by which government propaganda was communicated to the citizenry through the medium of coinage both reached their peak during these fourteen decades. The preceding coinages of the Julio-Claudian and Flavians periods had seen much experimentation with the currency system and tentative early steps in the development of the propaganda potential of the types. The coinages of the and those of the Antonine and dynasties saw the ultimate fulfillment of this process resulting in a coinage of unprecedented volume and complexity. The number of types included in the listings shows a dramatic increase and the proportion of illustrated coins is much greater than before. Throughout the catalogue the current market valuations have been expressed in two currencies (pound sterling and US dollars) and in at least two grades of preservation - usually VF and EF for precious metal coins, and F and VF for the and bronze issues of Roman . For regular aes denominations ( , dupondi, , etc.) valuations in three grades (F, VF and EF) have normally been provided.
