Presented here are modern reproductions of iconic Greek and Roman coins that none us can afford. Each of these reproductions are hand-struck from dies cut by modern day master celetors; each coin will be slightly different, just as in the ancient past.
None of these coins are meant to be perceived as original; they are modern replicas struck in the tin or silver. The silver coins have a countermark 'S' on the reverse.
NRC is presenting these issues for collectors and teachers whom cannot afford the high price of the authentic issues. For instance, an authentic Julius Caesar 'EID MAR' denarius in VF condition will cost the buyer $80-$100 thousand dollars! The are that rare.
