TIBERIUS, A.D. 14-37. AR Denarius (3.78 gms), Lugdunum Mint, A.D. 18-35. NGC Ch AU, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 5/5.
RIC-30; RSC-16a. Obverse: Laureate head right; Reverse: Livia (as Pax) seated right on chair with ornate legs, holding scepter and branch. A stunningly magnificent example of this incredibly popular Biblical "Tribute Penny," this pretty Denarius is strongly struck and quite lustrous. Very little wearing is seen on the design, leaving this piece as an immensely popular type accounting to its connection to Jesus and the synoptic Gospels.
From the Jones Collection.
Estimate: $1600 - $2400
