Rare Denarius Depicting Both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony!

During his reign, most coins struck by Julius Caesar did not feature his portrait. And yet this silver denarius, struck in Cisalpine Gaul (Southern France) in the autumn of 43 B.C. -- about eight months after the death of Caesar -- features not only his profile, but that of Mark Antony. Why?

The answer is simple. This coin was used by Mark Antony as a propaganda tool in his quest to become sole emperor. He even displays Caesar on the coin with the legend "CAESAR DIC," deifying the former ruler.

In the past 17 years, only 20 of these coins have been sold at auction -- and of them, only two were in better condition than this one, graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as Extra Fine (XF) with a special star designation and a Strike 5/5 and Surface 4/5. We've never been able to offer a coin quite like this before -- and we only have one available. Secure it for your collection now!
