There’s a new holder of the title ‘most expensive Roman coin of all time’. With a hammer price equivalent to almost 3 million euros, the new number one leaves the previous record holder, which was sold for 1.3 million euros, far behind.
Roma Numismatics’s Auction XX features 1,020 lots from important collections. The top highlight of the auction is the third known aureus of the EID-MAR-type issued by Caesar’s murderer Brutus. The only known specimen available on the market is estimated at £500,000.
Few ancient coins are as legendary as Brutus’ “Eid Mar”. The conspirator against Caesar issued the silver coin featuring the iconic cap of liberty and two daggers. Only two specimens in gold were known. Now a third aureus will be offered in auction by Roma Numismatics.
