Ancient Coins of Julius Caesar for Sale

The coinage available here do not depict Julius Caesar's face, as it had not been acceptable in ancient Rome to depict a living person on coinage. It was only at the very end of his life, and following his death, that coins depicted his likeness. Instead, these coins were struck following his defeat of Gaul. They depict an elephant, symbolizing the might of Rome, crushing a serpent, symbolizing Gaul. The reverse of the coins depict emblems of the pontificate: a simpulum, aspergillum, securis, and apex.
