Caesar Coin Pack - Aureus
Quantity:  2.15

Gaius Julius Caesar was a Roman military and political leader and one of the most influential men in world history. He played a critical role in the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire and his conquest of Gaul, extended the Roman world all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. He made two military expeditions to Britain in 54 and 55BC.

Unhappy with Caesar's reforms, Marcus Junius Brutus, conspired with others to murder the dictator and restore the Republic. The assassination occurred on March 15th 44BC and led to another civil war.

Struck between 48-47BC, this reproduction 22ct gold plated aureus coin is made from lead-free pewter and celebrates Caesar's success in the Gallic Wars. The obverse shows a laureate female head, most probably the goddess Venus, from whom Caesar was believed to have descended. The numerals LII to the left, represent Caesar's age, 52. The reverse shows a trophy of Gallic arms, including horned helmet, coat of mail, oval shield and dragon headed war trumpet.

The coin is held in a clear plastic blister and is supplied in full colour pamphlet style packaging, complete with images and historical information of both the coin and life of Julius Caesar.
