Authentic Roman Imperial coin minted circa A.D. 330-335 set in 18K yellow gold with peridot and gold beaded tassel.
Handmade in Rome.
The wolf and twins are the motif of this coin issued by Constantine I ‘the Great’. This coin is a city commemorative, with Roma on the obverse side and the legend VRBS ROMA, The City Of Rome. Rome, it was said, was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus. Of course, this was a myth; in fact it was the city’s “foundation myth.” The two stars on the reverse represent the dioscuri (the twins Castor and Pollux). In Latin the twins are also known as the Gemini or Castores.

From dark to green to a golden brown, it is the patina of aged treasure coins that gives them their unique beauty. You should never scrub, buff or use anything abrasive on your bronze and copper coins in an attempt to “polish them up.” You may clean your coin bezel (the metal frame around your coin) only with a soft, non-abrasive polishing cloth.
Depicted on the Coin
Obverse: She-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus with stars above.
