Golden Age Hoard of Ancient Roman Silver Coins

Extremely Fine Antoninius Pius Denarii have been unearthed!

ModernCoinMart (MCM) is proud to bring you an exciting offering — silver denarii of legendary Roman Emperor Antoninius Pius, discovered in the Golden Age Hoard!

Antoninius Fulvus Pius, known as one of the ”Five Good Emperors,” reigned between A.D. 138 and 161. Regarded as a skilled administrator and builder, Rome undertook extensive construction during his reign, including aqueducts, bridges and roads throughout the empire. Despite these massive projects, he still managed to be one of the few Roman emperors to ever leave a large surplus in the public treasury for his successor.

These Bronze Prutot were struck by a historic figure straight out of the Bible!

Many bronze coins known as Prutah (Prutot for plural) were issued by Roman Procurators in Judaea, but none are as famous as those carried by ModernCoinMart right now. Thanks an exciting collection of bronze pieces sourced out of Israel, you can purchase high grade Prutot issued by the most infamous Roman Procurator of Ancient Judaea – Pontius Pilate himself!

Pontius Pilate is well-known from the Biblical account of Jesus Christ. He was the fifth prefect of the Roman province of Judaea, and he served as the regional governor under Roman Emperor Tiberius. He was responsible for providing final judgement on the trial of Jesus as spoken of in the Bible, Matthew 27:11-26. Pilate famously washed his hands to declare his innocence and allowed Jesus to be crucified.
