Post the coins that when you first saw them, your heart beat faster, a love &  passion, blood pressure moved - OuchClap Tell your story........
 
WHEN THIS COIN WAS TO BE SOLD AT AUCTION - IT SET A PASSION INSIDE OF ME - I TOOK A LOAN AGAINST MY HOME - I MADE PICTURES TO HANG ON THE WALL, I could not belive it was a coin of the the early 1stCent, it was like an Art Nevaux portrait. I WAS IN LOVE WITH A COIN. Later I found it was the cover coin of a book "WOMEN OF THE CAESARS" The lives and Portraits on Coins. GIORGIO GIACOSA
 
Sestertius 37-41, Æ  AGRIPPINA M F MAT C CAESARIS AVGVSTI
Draped bust r., hair falling
This coin is the cover coin of the Female Caesars by Jacozi A coin of incredible detail & condition from the ring holding the reigns of the donkeys to a portrait that launched a "love" to aquire the coin. Very few coins of this period exist in such a natural condition. 
The Rev. S P Q R / MEMORIAE / AGRIPPINAE Carpentum drawn l. by two mules; the cover supported by standing figures at the corners with ornamented side.
Agrippina Senior, one of the most tragically unfortunate women of Roman history. Agrippina was destined to achieve the highest possible status that did not happen. In 29AD she deprived her of freedom, and in 33AD of life itself. This sestertii dedicated to Agrippina was produced by her son Caligula, The inscription, SPQR MEMORIAE AGRIPPINAE, is itself dedicatory from
the Senate and the Roman people to the memory o f Agrippina.
