Origin: This truly unique set outlines part of Constantine the Great's family tree, featuring coins depicting his second wife and three sons who would go on to rule the Roman Empire as co-emperors. These coins are not only part of history but tell a story as well, giving you an instant themed collection.
Constantine II, Constantius II, and Constans inherited the Roman Empire after the elder Constantine's death in 337 AD. The brothers divided the empire and ruled their own separate territories in an uneasy truce. The peace was not to last though, and a series of civil wars eventually lead to Constantius being the empire's sole ruler.
Exclusively available in this collection is a rare coin of Constantine's second wife Fausta, who was stricken from official records after being executed (likely for having an affair with her stepson, Crispus). These coins are one of the few parts of her legacy that survive.
Each of these bronze Roman nummi have been inspected by an ANA Certified numismatist, and are guaranteed to be genuine.

Actually, many relics are able to be owned by anyone.
Typically, museums only want to display items that are either very rare or incredibly well preserved. This leaves many items that don't make the cut, and these are able to be owned by individuals.
While the items we sell aren't "museum grade," they still carry with them the same amount of history and uniqueness. Each relic was still hand made by a person, hundreds or even thousands of years ago.
One of our core values is not to damage or alter any of the artifacts we sell.
History needs to be preserved—after all, there is a limited amount of it that survives—but it is also something to be shared with the masses. For this reason, we put our relics in sturdy display cases that are safe to handle, but are mindful that someday the relic may need to be taken out again.
No glue or resin holds the items in place. Instead, we're developed our own method for holding the relics securely in their displays using pressure alone. In fact, any of our relics can be removed in their original condition by simply opening the display case.
