The "Gold Tribute Penny." The Gospel of Thomas 100:1-4 (excluded from the New Testament) tells a slightly different version of the "Tribute Penny" story.."They showed Jesus a gold (coin) and said to him:  Caesar’s agents demand taxes from us.  He said to them:  Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar; give to God what belongs to God, and give to me what is mine."

|Faustina| |Sr.|, |Diva| |Faustina| |and| |Galerius| |Antoninus,| |c.| |147| |A.D.||provincial| |dupondius|
Galerius Antoninus was the second son of Antoninus Pius and Faustina, and he died young before his father's accession. This type is obviously a part of the massive commemorative issues struck by Antoninus after his wife died in 141. The mint is uncertain, traditionally being assigned to Cyprus, while Rome being another possibility based on the very fine style.
RP30703. Bronze provincial dupondius, SGICV 1540, Cohen II 1-2, VF, weight 11.418 g, maximum diameter 28.0 mm, die axis 0o, uncertain mint, c. 147 A.D.; obverse ΘEA ΦAYCTEINA, veiled and draped bust right; reverse M ΓAΛEPIOC ANTWNINOC AYTOKPATOPOC ANTWNINOY YIOC, draped bust of Galerius Antonius left; rare; SOLD


Augustus, 16 January 27 B.C. - 19 August 14 A.D., Caius and Lucius Reverse

|Augustus|, |Augustus,| |16| |January| |27| |B.C.| |-| |19| |August| |14| |A.D.,| |Caius| |and| |Lucius| |Reverse||denarius|
Struck around the time of Jesus' birth. This type is considered a possible "Tribute Penny" because it is a denarius that circulated in the lifetime of Christ and the image and inscription are of "Caesar."

The brothers, Caius and Lucius, were the sons of Agrippa and Julia, daughter of Augustus. They were due to succeed Augustus but predeceased him in 4 and 2 A.D. respectively. Gaius, the elder of the two brothers has his shield placed in front of that of his younger brother and the ladle above him marking him as Pontifex. Lucius has lituus above marking him as augur. Gaius should have the more prestigious position on the left but this variety has him on the right.
SH16744. Silver denarius, RIC I 210 (S), RSC I 43c, BMCRE I 540, BnF I 1659 ff., SRCV I 1597, aMS, extraordinary mirror luster, superb sharp portrait, weight 3.828 g, maximum diameter 20.1 mm, die axis 0o, Lugdunum (Lyon, France) mint, 2 B.C. - 4 A.D.; obverse CAESAR AVGVSTVS DIVI F PATER PATRIAE, laureate head right; reverse C L CAESARES AVGVSTI F COS DESIG PRINC IVVENT, Caius and Lucius Caesars togate stand facing, each resting hand on a round shield with spear behind, above center on left a lituus right and on right a simpulum left; SOLD

Julius Caesar, Imperator and Dictator, October 49 - 15 March 44 B.C.

|Julius| |Caesar|, |Julius| |Caesar,| |Imperator| |and| |Dictator,| |October| |49| |-| |15| |March| |44| |B.C.||denarius|
On 26 November 43 B.C. Octavian, Antony and Lepidus agreed to a five-year autocratic pact, the Second Triumvirate. In October 42 B.C. the Republican army was defeated by the legions Antony and Octavian at Philippi. Brutus committed suicide on 28 October. The Republican cause was crushed; Rome rested in the hands of the Second Triumvirate. The rudder and globe are symbolic of Caesar's mastery of land and sea, the apex a reminder of his piety as Pontifex Maximus, and the cornucopia and caduceus were symbolic of the prosperity and happiness that Caesar had provided to the Roman people.

The Altar of Lugdunum and the Sanctuary of the Three Gauls were dedicated by Augustus on 1 August 10 B.C., the very same day Drusus' son, the future emperor Claudius, was born in Lugdunum. All the notable men of Gaul were invited. Caius Julius Vercondaridubnus, a member of the Aedui tribe, was the first priest of the new imperial cult. The altar, which was engraved with the names of 60 Gallic tribes, was featured prominently on coins from the Lugdunum mint for many years.
