The Edward Sawyer Collection

FORVM is pleased to offer the Edward Sawyer collection of interesting, attractive and very rare Roman coins. The primary theme of the collection is a type set of Roman denominations in high grade. A second theme is emperors with reigns lasting less than a year. Perhaps these themes will inspire your own collecting plans or perhaps you will find coins here that fit your own collection goals.

The Romans believed that Fortuna, after deserting the Persians and Assyrians, took flight over Macedonia and saw Alexander perish as she passed into Egypt and into Syria. At last arriving on Mount Palatine, she threw aside her wings and casting away her wheel, entered Rome where she took up her abode forever.
