Domitian was Roman emperor from 81 to 96. He was the younger brother of Titus and the son of Vespasian, his two predecessors on the throne, and the last member of the Flavian dynasty. During his reign, the authoritarian nature of his rule put him at sharp odds with the Senate, whose powers he drastically curtailed. The word dēnārius is derived from the Latin dēnī “containing ten”, as its value was originally of 10 assēs. The word for “money” descends from it in Italian (denaro), Slovene (denar), Portuguese (dinheiro), and Spanish (dinero). Its name also survives in the dinar currency.

Each ancient coin and artefact we place into jewellery has been restored and professionally stabilised to preserve it for lifetimes of enjoyment. Patina, the natural toning and oxidation that occurs on silver, bronze and copper coins, is not dirt – it is a layer of what becomes protection for the coin formed over hundreds of years and is a valuable part of the coin’s unique history. Conservation efforts stabilise and preserve these precious patinas whenever possible. Please don’t try to “improve” your ancient coin, it has already been perfected by numismatic specialists.

Silver naturally tones over time to a soft to deepening grey, with brighter highlights on the raised surfaces of the design. This toning is highly coveted as it adds a touch of age and beauty to the coin’s details that only time can. DO NOT, under any circumstances, attempt to strip this patina. You may clean your coin bezel (the metal frame around your coin) only with a soft, non-abrasive polishing cloth. To remove skin oils and smudges from your silver treasure coin jewellery, use warm water mixed with non-citrus, plain dish soap and a soft-bristle tooth brush. Rinse it in clean water and use a soft, cotton towel to gently and completely dry.
