    Roman Republic Silver Denarius 55 BC Pendant with Mars, the God of War and the Guardian 

    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 55 BC by moneyer Fonteius PF Capito. It pictures Mars in a helmet. Mars was the god of war and held a pivotal role as a guardian. On the back (reverse) is a horseman thrusting a spear at an enemy who is about to kill and unarmed captive. 

    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: Mars, the guardian and god of war, makes a fairly rare appearance on this denarius with his helmet and strong profile. On the reverse is a classic Roman horseman. 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 Mark” circled in red. This mark was made by a banker or merchant who was 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.
