FOR SALE: Our Collection of Ancient Roman Provincial Coins. As Rome’s influence spread and she consolidated power, lands once held by Celts, barbaric tribes, independent city-states, Greek Hellenistic kingdoms and others fell under its authority. Romans left local provincial religion, governors and coinage in place, so local coins, struck at over 600 provincial mints, all produced their own bronze, silver and gold coinage which could circulate within a single city, across a region or across the Mediterranean or Black Sea. Provincial Roman coinage may have Greek or Latin legends because many of these areas had previously been part of the vast Macedonian Empire of Alexander the Great.
