Description: This gold bullion coin collection is the real deal, containing ½ ounces of actual gold weight per coin. It is part of the 40-coin MintDirect Premier Tube of ½ oz. Gold American Eagles and is sold by Ampex. Fun fact: The U.S. Mint does not sell bullion coins directly to the public, but instead distributes them to authorized purchasers that are then allowed to sell them. Ampex is one of those distributors, so if you have an Ampex coin collection, then you know it is legit.

Each coin has a grade rating of Brilliant Uncirculated (BU), which means that it has never been circulated and is still in prime condition.

Magnentius Usurper 350-353AD Rare Authentic Ancient Roman Coin...
  • $50-$75 value professional Certificate of Authenticity included FREE by seller with history. Item is Guaranteed...
  • Seller is a world-renowned ancient coin expert with over 10 years of expertise, whom has worked with over 40,000 coins.
  • Ancient Coins make great gifts, excellent for learning and are amazing for collecting and/or investing in.

Description:

We included the “allegedly” qualifier when mentioning the cost because several reviews claim that this listing is way off the mark, with one review even going as far as to say that it would not go for more than $50. With that in mind, take this listing with a grain of salt.

Nevertheless, Magnentius (the man depicted on the coin) was, in fact, a real person in Roman history. He was what was known as a Usurper, which means he essentially tried to assume control of the Roman Empire by force. That didn’t go so well for poor Magnentius, who only lasted as Usurper from 350 until his death in 353 A.D.

Description:

Whoa there! The depiction on this coin is a just little bit steamy, so keep out of reach of children. Let’s just say that the “embracing” part isn’t quite as wholesome as a simple hug.

Interestingly enough, this “coin” is made out of terracotta clay and is actually part of an oil lamp. It turns out that lamps were commonly designed this way in ancient Roman times.

This coin has a grade rating of Good provided by the seller, and it also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.
