Roman Provincial Coins of Gaul
Augustus, 16 January 27 B.C. - 19 August 14 A.D., Unofficial or Semi-official Cast in Gaul

|Augustus|, |Augustus,| |16| |January| |27| |B.C.| |-| |19| |August| |14| |A.D.,| |Unofficial| |or| |Semi-official| |Cast| |in| |Gaul||as|
This coin is clearly cast and not an official struck Rome mint issue. The molds were made with an official Rome mint as, struck under the moneyer Volusus Valerius Messalla, c. 6 B.C. Many unofficial counterfeits or perhaps semi-offical local imitations were struck and cast in Gaul, especially during the reign of Claudius (up to 50% of the bronze Claudius coins found in some areas), apparently due to shortages of official coinage. This coin may have been cast at that time.

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

|Bithynia|, |Julius| |Caesar,| |Imperator| |and| |Dictator,| |October| |49| |-| |15| |March| |44| |B.C.,| |Nicaea,| |Bithynia||AE| |22|
Minted in Nicaea in 47 - 46 B.C., this was the first coin type to feature Julius Caesar's portrait. It was struck by the proconsul Gaius Vibius Pansa, who had been part of the Caesarian faction at Rome, and who probably owed his proconsulship to his patron. During Caesar's lifetime, only three provincial mints struck coins with his portrait: Nicaea, Bithynia; Lampsacus, Mysia; and Corinth, Greece. The first coins struck in Rome with a portrait of Caesar were denarii minted by M. Mettius in January 44 B.C.
