Lot description:


TIBERIUS, A.D. 14-37. AV Aureus (7.75 gms), Lugdunum Mint, A.D. 18-35. NGC EF, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 4/5. Edge Cut.
RIC-29; Calico-305a. "Tribute Penny" type. Obverse: Laureate head right; Reverse: Livia (as Pax), holding scepter and olive branch, seated right on chair; feet on footstool, ornate chair legs, single line below. An extremely beloved type on account of its Biblical connection, this example pops with eye appeal and charm. The surfaces are highly lustrous and the strike is bold, though slightly off center on the reverse. The edge cut noted by NGC is seen near 3 o'clock, though it is rather marginal and does nothing to detract from the beauty. An excellent example and one that instills much awe in the eyes of the beholder.

Estimate: $4000 - $6000
