Faustina-Sr-RIC-394a.jpg
057. Faustina Senior.16 viewsDenarius, after 141 AD, Rome mint.
Obverse: DIVA AVG FAVSTINA / Bust of Faustina.
Reverse: PIETAS AVG / Pietas veiled, standing, dropping incense on altar, and holding a box.
3.59 gm., 18.5 mm.
RIC #394a; Sear #4598.

Faustina died early on in the reign of her husband. Most of her coinage is from the extensive memorial coinage issued in the years after her death. The portrait on this particular coin is exceptionally elegant and dignified.

Visible on the reverse (lower right edge) of this coin is an inclusion of copper that did not get melted and mixed with the silver when the planchet was made. That this coin is probably not a fouree is evidenced by the fact that it weighs a bit more than other denarii of the period.

An extremely convincing fouree, with break-through wear on the highest points on the reverse. Crawford says that the type repeats the control mark, which is variable in execution on authentic pieces, on both sides, which I do not clearly see on this otherwise crisp coin; perhaps this was a "tell" to contemporaries.

Per C. Clay: Since the titles don't fit, I think it's probably an ancient imitation.
When D. became TR P X on 13 Sept. 90, he had already been COS XV for 9 1/2 months, since 1 Jan. 90, and he had been IMP XXI since some time before then, in the course of 89. So it's unlikely that an old die calling him COS XIIII and IMP XIX was still lying around the mint for possible mistaken reuse!

This Fouree is in good condition and didn’t see extensive circulation. This example shows slight bubbling in the silvering and only a slight peek of the copper core beneath at the top of the alter’s flame. The portrait is also slightly off for this period of Domitian as Caesar under Titus.

Fourees tend to be common during the Republic and era of the 12 Caesars. Ancient forgeries with a bronze core and silver coating, they were meant to pass as full silver pieces. This example has irregular lettering showing it was not made from official mint dies as some fourees appear to be, but an outright forgery copying a common type of Domitian.

Without the breaks in the silver, the unofficial lettering would give this away as a fouree, as would the die axis and light weight. Interestingly, this coin mimics RIC II 737 minted in 92 A.D. which RIC lists as vary rare (R2). IMP XXII was Domitian’s final imperial acclamation.

I’ve seen a number of Domitian fouree denarii, but the issue this one attempts to copy is what interested me. The original was minted to celebrate the Secular Games, and only issued for a brief time. If you were going to copy something, it would see the ubiquitous Minerva reverses would be more likely to avoid close scrutiny.

Fouree coins were produced by ancient counterfeiters by putting a bronze flan between two thin sheets of silver foil and striking the with fake dies. They were very common in 1st-3rd centuies AD, but the silver came off fairly easily, and most of the preserved fourees are just copper cores.

- He forgot AVG.
- NERVAE requires TRAIANO.
- If I am correct in reading "GOER", is that the actual pronunciation in ancient times? Even today in the English "Germany" it has an oe/ö-sound, whereas in German we pronounce it with an "e" like in "elephant".

Gordian III was the grandson of Gordian I and nephew of Gordian II. He was proclaimed Caesar shortly before the murder of Balbinus and Pupienus, and he succeeded them. Little is known about his reign. In 242 A.D. he embarked on a campaign against the Persian Kingdom which was so successful the Persians had to evacuate Mesopotamia. However, Gordian III died shortly after, through illness or the machinations of his Praetorian prefect and successor, Philip I.

"Year 46 BC was the last year of the pre-Julian Roman calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Caesar and Lepidus (or, less frequently, year 708 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 46 BC for this year has been used since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years. This year had 445 days due to the errors that had accumulated in the pre-Julian calendar, and was therefore nicknamed annus confusionis ("year of confusion"). The Julian calendar was introduced in this year, although it did not go into effect until 45 BC."

I'm not really sure what to make of this coin. I looks like a limes denarius even though it is too early for them. Oddly the weight is not that far off for a silver coin. But then there is what looks like sand or something that is stuck to the coin like it would have come out of a casting mold but the lettering is too sharp for it to be a cast, implying that it was struck. The statute of limitations to return it long passed so now I keep it until I can figure it out.

From Forum Ancien Coins, thanks!

The coin plainly shows the foil technique used in antiquity to counterfeit denarii. Before striking, two pieces of silver foil were wrapped overlapping around a bronze core to create a silver plated counterfeit flan. This is a rare example where one of the two foil sheets is missing, and the other is fairly complete, revealing details of the technique (FAC)

Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus was a republican admiral who accompanied Brutus to Macedonia after Caesar's assassination. He was given command of the fleet in the Adriatic. After Cassius and Brutus were defeated at Philippi, Ahenobarbus turned to piracy and was in command of up to 2 legions and 70 ships. He was reconciled to Antony's side by Asinius Pollio and after the Pact of Brundisium he was given back his civic rights and was appointed Governor of Bithynia. He remained loyal to Antony almost to the end but deserted him just prior to Actium, dying shortly after of illness.

SRCV 283, Sydenham 738a, Crawford 361/1c, RSC I Crepusia 1 (official, Rome mint, 82 B.C.), VF, 2.637g, 18.5mm, 315o, obverse laureate head of Apollo right; reverse , horseman galloping right hurling spear, pseudo control numeral ICLVIIV? behind, S P? CREP[...] in exergue; nice style, near intact plating. The official prototype of this counterfeit shows Apollo wearing a scepter across shoulder, and with control-letters and objects in the obverse field, all of which are missing on our coin. The official specimens are remarkable by having large control numeral numerals on reverse. We have seen several higher than 400, and some are quite long, for example CCCCXXVIIII. It is unlikely this is an actual die serial number reflecting the number of produced dies. The engraver of our counterfeit had little knowledge of Roman numerals, ICLVIIV makes no sense.

ROMAN EMPIRE, Elagabalus Fouree Antoninianus254 views" However if his too is just the core of a plated ancient forgery, then it is not the early mint product that I was postulating, but just the work of an ancient forger that could easily be joining an obv. and a rev. derived from two different coins. Checking my cast of Gunner's coin against Heather's image, the two coins do appear to be from the same dies.
Apart from stealing mint dies, counterfeiters sometimes manufactured transfer dies from official coins, which also allowed them to produce counterfeits in mint style. " - Curtis Clay

The coin has many blisters and breaks in the silver foil showing evidence that the core is highly corroded. There's a rusty-looking area on the rev. 7o'clock that made me test the coin with a magnet. The coin jumped to the magnet and stuck. Iron-cores are much more rare than copper.

Per Curtis Clay:
An ancient counterfeit combining a Roman obv. legend introduced in 198, also used on new-style Eastern coins, with an old-style Easten rev. type used in 194-5 and early 197.
Not uninteresting, because ancient counterfeits rarely copy old-style Eastern types.

US Fourée Lincoln Cent, 198213 viewsDenver commenced minting the copper-plated
zinc cents in October of 1981. The plating
technology had not been perfected, and
occasionally one finds these early issues with
numerous air bubbles between the zinc core
and copper plating.

Obv. – IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right

Rev. – COS ITER TR POT, Pax seated left on chair without back, holding branch in right and caduceus in left

Coin in natural "as found" uncleaned state.

The dark areas that look like possible patina breaks, thus suggesting a fouree, are actually surface deposits and sit atop the surrounding silver areas.

Vespasian / Pax Denarius111 viewsVespasian. AD 69-79. Fourrée Denarius (19mm, 3.48).
Obverse style and legend copying Ephesus mint denarii. Reverse copying extremely rare aureus from Antioch - RIC 1539
O: IMP CAES VESPAS AVG Laureate head right
R: PONT MAX – TRIB POT Pax seated r. on throne, holding olive branch and vertical scepter.

For some reason the forger decided to match a denarius obverse from Ephesus with an aureus reverse from Antioch.
Although the weight is good, the poor style, muling of types indicates a possible fourrée.

Vespasian Denarius. 77-78 AD. IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left / COS VIII, Prow right, star of eight rays above. RSC 137.
Weight - 2.8g
Diameter - 18mm approx
The coin appears to have a low grade silver core that had been plated with quality silver.
The centre has been domed, almost as if hit by a ball pien hammer.
A crack has formed from the outer flan to almost the centre.

x Fourree Mule of Titus as Caesar87 viewsTitus as Caesar. Unknown, unofficial, mint. (2.11g, 18.1m, 6h.) Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPSIAN, laureate head right. Rev: AVGV[R?] above, TRI P[OT], below, priestly implements. Reverse, RIC II V43.

Titus, as Caesar, never had the reverse with the priestly implements. That was Vespasian in 70A.D. The legends is anticlockwise. The style is unofficial, and the weight is low making it a likely fouree even in the absence of any break in the silvering.
