Roman Gold Coins

It should be no surprise that ancient gold coins are highly desired by collectors. Roman mints employed their most skilled artists to engrave the dies for the gold coinage. The portraits on the gold coins are exceptionally beautiful. Gold never corrodes, so ancient gold coins are as lustrous today as they were when they circulated in empire. We get quite a few Roman gold coins but they sell quickly so we often have only a few in stock.

Valens, 28 March 364 - 9 August 378 A.D.

|Valens|, |Valens,| |28| |March| |364| |-| |9| |August| |378| |A.D.||solidus|
Valens ruled the Eastern Roman Empire from the Danube to the Persian border. He allowed Goths, who were driven from their home by the Huns, to settle in the Danube provinces. The Goths were so badly treated by Romans that they rebelled. Valens was defeated and killed by the Goths at the battle of Hadrianople.
