    Happy Monday!

    Below is a collection of August As. Beginning around 15 B.C. these became the workhouse of the new empire. The reform here is the senate was responsible for the mintage of bronze coins. Hence the big SC!

    I'd love to see your coins of Augustus. My next in this area will likely be a denarius of Augustus with a bull from Lugdunum.

    Let's see 'em!

    I love all those Moneyer Asses in one photo! Looks really beautiful like that. Also always really cool seeing a bunch of large RIC bronzes with nice surfaces together to see the variety of colors / patinas.

    How about a couple of Divus Augustus? Followed by a Provincial (from Thessaly; that's not his portrait, though, believe it or not it's Athena!).

    These are all photos from CNG:

    My very first ancient coin was this Augustus As:
    Augustus RIC 379 (2020_11_18 03_38_31 UTC).JPG

    A few other cool ones.

    COL NEMI croc. Picked up this bad boy for $12.50.

    A nice triple head:

    This really great Augustus/Caesar coin only set me back $12.50 as well.
