    Choice AU Tiberius Aureus

    Tiberius (AD 14-37). AV aureus (20mm, 7.87 gm, 8h). Lugdunum, ca. AD 15-18. TI CΛESΛR DIVI ΛVG F ΛVGVSTVS, laureate head right / PONTIF MΛXIM, Livia (as Pax) seated right, holding olive branch and scepter. RIC 25. Calicó 305d. Exceptionally well-centered and lustrous early issue struck from dies of fine style. NGC Choice AU? 5/5 - 5/5.

    Like Tiberius himself, the coinage of his reign was intensely conservative, with only a single precious metal type in use for almost the entirety of his 23-years on the throne. The reverse depicts the Pax, personification of peace (thought to be his mother Livia in the guise of a goddess) holding an olive branch and scepter.
