Roman Coins date back to the 4th Century BCE around the year 326. By then Rome was still a Republic composed of two consuls, assemblies of the people, magistrates who were elected by the people, and a senate that advised magistrates.
It was during the time of the Roman Republic, that Rome first expanded from the city’s immediate surroundings to hegemony over the Mediterranean world. Some very interesting Ancient Roman Coins were minted during this period. Including many Republican Denarius depicting Rome’s founders, Romulus and Remus, being suckled by a she-wolf.
Coins were symbols of power in Imperial times and were often used to disseminate the Emperor’s image across the empire as having god-like status. Julius Caesar was the first Roman Emperor to issue coins bearing his own portrait. He started a trend that many roman emperors would soon follow, including his great-nephew Augustus, the infamous Commodus, and the cruel Caligula.
