Description:
Rare IVDAEA Aureus
Vespasian (AD 69-79). AV aureus (19mm, 7.33 gm, 6h). Judaea Capta issue. Rome, late AD 69-early AD 70. IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head of Vespasian right / Military trophy with cuirass, helmet, greaves and two shields, before which sits female Jewish captive right in attitude of mourning, IVDAEA in exergue. RIC 1. Hendin 1464. Rare, particularly so in good grade, and highly sought-after. Choice Very Fine.

The IVDAEA CAPTA coinage series was the broadest and most diverse issue of coins celebrating a Roman victory issued up to that time, comprising coins of every metal, denomination, and mint. They formed an important part of the overall propaganda campaign establishing the legitimacy of the Flavian dynasty. The new edition of Roman Imperial Coinage lists this rare aureus as the first struck in Rome by Vespasian once his forces had seized control of the capital in December of AD 69. Scarce in any condition, it is remarkably rare in any condition above Very Fine and this specimen is superior to those found in most public collections.
