FORVM 's Portrait Gallery

Most experienced collectors are able to tell what emperor issued a coin |just| by looking at the obverse portrait. This skill is impressive to non-collectors and beginners, but more importantly it is also useful to identify those coins so worn that legends cannot be easily read anymore.  The gallery above is a display of characteristic portraits from coins and we hope it will be helpful to those seeking to identify roman coins.
