Corona Virus Update

Buying from us

We continue to operate here at Silbury Coins in these unprecedented times, albeit working from home. You can still buy items on our website as usual. Shipping may take a little longer as we are making fewer trips to the post office and some postal services are operating a reduced service. We will keep you updated at every step of the order/shipping process. If you have any questions regarding shipping you can contact Lucy (lucy@silburycoins.com) or John (info@silburycoins.com) and they will be happy to help. 

We are closely monitoring the postal service and will update on any changes, if you'd prefer we can safely store your items until a later date, just ask.

Selling to us

We are still buying single items and collections by post. If you’d prefer you can send pictures via email, phone or WhatsApp for a rough valuation first. To sell items please send them to us using Royal Mail Special Delivery (available at any post office, both insured and tracked). Please package well and include your contact details, we will be in touch when your package arrives with an exact price. If this is acceptable we will pay you by direct bank transfer, if not we will return the items to you via the same method of post.

Imperial 27BC-98AD

Roman Imperial 27BC-98AD coins for sale. Augustus based the Roman Imperial coinage on the aureus at 1/42nd of a pound of gold, which was equivalent to 25 silver denarii, which in turn was equivalent to 16 copper asses. Within this framework, the bronze sestertius was valued at 4 asses and the brass dupondius at 2 asses. The monetary system of Augustus formed the basis of the coinage for two centuries. Nero first lightened the aureus and denarius in AD64, with debasement afterwards, a trend which would follow the course of the Empire, driven by inflation.
