Vespasian Coinage

Aureus 70 Rome Coin, Vespasian, Rome, Gold, 19,625.00 US$

Peacefulness restored to the Roman World

After Nero’s death in 68 AD, the first civil war of the Roman Empire became a reality in the following year. In 69 AD, it was the Year of the Four Emperors, the generals Galba, Otho and Vitellius ascended the throne within a couple of months of each other.
But the fourth general Vespasian was victorious and he founded the Flavian dynasty that ruled the Empire for 27 years.
He helped restore Rome again after the civil war. He also built the temple of Peace.
Many coins minted in Rome under Vespasian show something of military victory or peace. Below some of the Vespasian coins or you can click here: Vespasian Coins

Under Vespasian, peace and tranquillity had been restored to the Roman world.
To this end, the coinage of Vespasian proclaimed that peace had been restored and a new Temple of Peace was erected in a new addition to the forum known as the Forum of Vespasian.
The Temple of Vesta had burned down twice in written history. In 64 AD, the Great Fire of Rome destroyed most of Rome, including the Temple of Vesta.
It was said by Cassius Dio to have been started by the infamous Nero, but according to Tacitus, Nero was at Antium at the time of the fire.
Nevertheless, we find that Vespasian issued coins showing the Temple of Vesta had been reconstructed.
