Claudius Coin Pack - Aureus
Quantity:  2.15

At the assassination of Caligula in January 41AD, Claudius fled and hid. He was discovered by the Praetorian Guard, who declared him emperor. Although he lacked a military reputation, Claudius sent four legions to conquer Britain in 43AD and then presided over the capture of Colchester, the capital of the new province, before returning to Rome in triumph.

Claudius died in October 54AD, after being poisoned, probably by his fourth wife Agrippina, whose son Nero, succeeded as Emperor.

This reproduction 22ct gold plated aureus coin is made from lead-free pewter and depicts the Triumphal Arch of Claudius, built in Rome and celebrates the conquest of Britain. The obverse shows the bust of Claudius and the text IMP XI at the end of the inscription refers to Claudius's 11 vistories in Britain. The reverse has DE BRITANN on a triumphal arch with Claudius riding between two groups of shields and armour.

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 Claudius.
