    Roman Republic Silver Denarius Serratus 82 BC Necklace with Jupiter & Victory

    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 Serratus, was minted by moneyer Q. Antonius Balbus in 82 BC. It pictures the laureate head of Jupiter. Jupiter was the master god and the god of sky and thunder. On the back (reverse) is Victory, the goddess of victory in battle and over death, drivingquadriga (a chariot pulled by four horses) holding a wreath and palm

    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.

    Your Roman Treasure Coin Necklace

    • Denomination: Denaruis Serratus (Serratus is the Latin root of our English word "Serrated.") The edge of this coin was notched to assist in preventing the shaving of the edges by nefarious persons.
    • Moneyer: Q. Antonius Balbus
    • Date & Mint: 82 BC, Rome
    • Coin Metal: Silver
    • Bezel Metal: 14K White Gold
    • Articulating Bail Interior Diameter: Will accommodate chain or leather necklace up to 6.2 mm
    • Coin Obverse: Jupiter, the master god and the god of sky and thunder
    • Coin Reverse: Victory, the goddess of victory in battle and over death, driving a quadriga
    • Size: 3/4" / 20mm Across, 1 1/4" / 32mm Tall - just a bit smaller than a U.S. Quarter including the bezel (frame)

    April's Notes: One of the first things you may notice about this striking Roman Republic denarius is its "serrated" edge - the notches cut into the edge all around the coin. Called aSerratus, the edges were notched so that anyone who took this coin in payment could tell if some sneaky (I like the term nefarious) individual had shaved some of the silver off the edge! It is the early form of the serrated edges on modern coins like the U.S. dime and quarter. The coin itself has a wonderful portrait and excellent detail on both sides - a fascinating example of ancient Roman coinage.

    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.
