Coins of the 12 Caesars


In April 2015 I bought my first ancient coin, a denarius of Otho. I had been reading sites such as Forum as well as several books before deciding to buy my first coin. I remember reading Suetonius and thought it would be interesting to assemble a set of the 12 Caesars. I decided I wanted to do this with silver coins. From my reading I realized that there were a few coins that would be tough, namely Gaius, Claudius and Otho. The Otho turned out to be surprisingly easy. I bought it from the first coin show I ever attended.

My goal was to get all 12 coins in at least vf or better condition. As one can tell from my gallery I have not quite accomplished this yet. My other goal was to collect coin with interesting reverses. I think one will see a number of interesting reverses in my gallery. though I do have all 12 in silver the project is never actually finished. I keep adding interesting coins and I have no desire to stop doing this.

My quest for the 12 Caesars started because I loved the historical period. Studying the period has led me to enjoy my coins even more. Every time I add a coin I try to think about its historical context. Collecting and studying the coins has led me to a deeper understanding of the time period.

I hope you enjoy my gallery.

Coins of Domitian


Thanks to David Atherton for suggesting that I create separate galleries for my Flavian coins. When I only had a few it did not matter as much. However, now that I have a significant number of Domitian denarii, I think it was time. David also made the point that I have many coins of Domitian that others do not have and that some people may want to find a specific coin more easily. I hope that this gallery serves that purpose. Comments on individual coins are always welcome and if you have any questions about my coins please do not hesitate to send me a pm.
