A set of two Roman coin replicas that depict the Roman invasion of Britain. Ideal as a gift for budding archaeologists.

Roman coins were not just a means of paying for goods. The face of the coins portrayed the ruling Emperor's face. The reverse of the coins were used to communicate great events or to promote the status of the Emperor to his people. For example, the Emperor may have depicted a god that had attributes with which he wished to be associated. The coins were circulated throughout the Empire bringing news, perhaps of events that had taken place far away. These coins depict the Roman invasion of Britain.

Two replica Roman coins are provided along with an information pack to learn all about your purchase.
