Ancient Gold Coins
NERO, (A.D. 54-68), gold aureus, issued c.65-66, Rome mint, (7.30 gm), obv. laureate head to right of Nero, around NERO CAESAR AVGVSTVS, rev. Jupiter seated left on throne, holding thunderbolt and sceptre, IVPPITER CVSTOS around, (S.1930, RIC 52, BMC 67, C.118). A nice example with golden red patination, nearly extremely fine or better and very rare in this condition.
The issue is in all probability a reference to Nero's deliverance from the conspiracy of C. Calpurnius Piso in A.D. 65.
