First issued by Julius Caesar, the aureus was the standard golden coin of the Roman Empire for many years. A sign of power, the practice of minting currency with a portrait of the current ruler was continued until the time of Constantine.

The Roman coin package includes the coins of Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian.
