Antiques With Gary DonFeatures

Good evening Mr Gary Don,

Hope you’re keeping well!

I saw your article in the Yorkshire Reporter and hoped you could give me some information on this old coin I’ve had for some time please.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards, 


Dear Anita,

Thank you for your email.

This coin is a reproduction of a Roman Empire sestertius made during the reign of Caligula, with Agrippina Sr, Julia Livilla, and Julia Drusilla (his three sisters) depicted on the back. Caligula is known as a selfish and capricious ruler blamed for weakening the Roman Empire during his brief 4 years reign.

The coin was originally struck in Rome during Caligula reign (circa 37-38 AD).

I can tell that yours is a reproduction due to its fine condition and it also has a modern silver hallmark .925. You can purchase these replicas for under £50.

An original Caligula coin in good condition can sell for several thousand pounds

Looks like it’s back to digging in the garden!
