MA-Shops has many categories of rare and special coins on their online marketplace. The one I like the most is the category: Roman Empire. This category is filled with more then 40,000 Roman coins ready to go to another collection.
Within this category, many rare Roman golden aurei can be found. For example, this very rare aureus from Licinius I. The iconography of the obverse is very uncommon. Mostly emperors were depicted en profil, so you could only see the side of the emperors head. Licinius here is depicted en face. So, you see the emperor Licinius in front. This coin would be a pearl in any collection, whether big or small. Even without a broader knowledge of ancient numismatics, the sheer beauty of this coin is sure to please the novice, along with the experienced collector. Many other aurei can be found on MA-Shops from the Roman empire. If you looking for a Roman coin, I’m confident you will find a coin you can appreciate on MA-Shops.

Many other coins can be found in this category. Rare denarii from higher price classes are not uncommon on MA-Shops and can enhance any collection. The well-known saying ‘’all that glitters is not gold’’ is an aphorism stating that not everything that looks precious or true turns out to be so. But of course, we numismatists do like gold, and importantly, everything on MA-Shops is guaranteed to be authentic. More then 15,000 coins from the Roman Empire can be found on MA-shops for under of €50 and more than 29,000 can be found for less than €100. So regardless of your budget, there is something for everyone at varying price points. MA-Shops offers a treasure trove of many great coins from trustworthy, Certified Dealers, and an outstanding array of Roman coins.
