Centuries before foxholes, tent cities and concrete bunkers, there were Roman army camp gates. Written about in SAN, The Celator and The Numismatist, these ancients with camp gate reverses, bring the daily workings of the Roman legions to life! For years, collectors have enjoyed coins with these designs on the reverse – now you can too!
Even after 1,650 years, Constantine II’s bronze Folles still retain the original silvering and are in desirable condition. Captured in crisp detail on the reverse is the mortared stone or brick fortress, complete with gates and towers, and clearly readable legends. Camp gates acted as an effective military defense that kept back 4th-century Barbarian hordes. These coins symbolized the protection that Constantine II gave the people of western provinces, during the last turbulent years of his reign. Struck by hand so no two are alike, these handsome ancients are a “must” for military buffs and those who collect Roman coins – don’t wait to order!
