Please Note: This is an authentic Ancient Roman Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.
Before the Roman Empire, there was the Roman Republic… where ancient Rome was ruled by the powerful Senate and moneyers were responsible for creating the coins used by the citizens of this rising power.
This silver coin, a Denaruis, was minted in Rome in 46 BC by moneyer Mn. Cordius Rufus. It pictures one of the Gemini Twins - the Dioscuri... one of the twins is no longer visible. The Dioscuri were the twin brothers, Castor and Pollus (in Latin, the twins are known as the Gemini, which literally means "Twins"), who were the patrons of sailors and horsemanship. On the back (reverse) is Venus, the goddess and living embodiment of love, beauty, desire, fertility, prosperity, and victory.
Our ancient coin pendants are a favorite of history fans, students, travel buffs and teachers… and anyone with a love of the past. Our Roman jewelry is designed to be worn by men or women will accommodate both large and small chain and leather necklaces.
April's Notes: A rarer issue, this denarius pictures the ever mischievous Gemini twins along with Venus! This coin is a classic example of early Roman coinage. It was passed through countless hands - Roman soldiers and citizens whose lives live on through their coins. Note the “Banker’s Marks” circled in red. These marks were made by bankers or merchants who were testing to see if the coin was counterfeit - just copper, with a thin silver wash. They took a small tool and hammered it into the coin to see if the metal below the surface was also silver. It was. Just another day in the Roman Republic!
(Please note: this information and much more will appear on your customized Certificate of Authenticity.)
Each ancient Roman coin was hand-struck by three people, and at the height of the Roman empire, coins were minted throughout the sprawling territories – even in military camps where coins were minted to pay soldiers. Lost or purposely hoarded, this ancient Roman Coin was discovered by metal detector and professionally conserved for a lifetime of enjoyment.
