Caesar Coin Pack - Denarius
Quantity:  1.95

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 in 49BC, this reproduction denarius coin is made from lead-free pewter and celebrates Caesar's conquest of Gaul. The coin has the Emperor's name and an elephant trampling a serpent on one side and a simpulum, sprinkler, axe and priests hat on the other, publicising his office as chief priest.

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.
