Roman Coins and More - Roman Numismatic Gallery:Dear Visitor of the Roman Numismatic Gallery,
We hope you enjoy the numismatic and archeological collections presented on this page. Please note that the private collecting of cultural artefacts is in danger of being ruled out in Germany by a new legislative effort, the revised so called 'Kulturgutschutzgesetz', which includes ie Import and Export permits / restrictions for every cultural artefact incl coins. Please support the clear grass roots message to German legislators that this law needs further discussion.

Do you need high resolution Images for Books, scientific articles, video projects etc.... ?

To contact us send an email describing your project, to romancoins.info @yahoo.com (please leave out the blank between our name and the @, this is to discourage spam robots)
Museum Mission Statement & How to contact us:
This museum features a portrait gallery of Roman emperors and their families from the late Roman republic to the end of the western Roman Empire, both on coins and in sculpture. Pieces of art in marble and metal. In addition you will find Roman historical coins; countermarks on Roman coins; legionary stamps on Roman bricks; Roman military diplomas; Roman military equipment; officials, provinces, buildings, animals, gods & mintmarks on Roman coins. Shorter sections cover Greek and Celtic coinage, and also the Byzantine Empire.
It does not represent specific collections, not even of a network of collectors (who could be that rich anyway ?) It is a completely virtual museum, with scans from many different sources. It thus took a lot of enthusiasm, but little budget to set up this museum. We are strictly non-commercial. No coins or artefacts to sell. Do not ask us about prices, we will not answer. We hope you will simply enjoy the beauty of history shown in large size images !
Please donate scans like many others have. Please read the Copyright Policy and take a look at the List of distinguished Scan Donors.We enjoy scientific discussion, please approach us with comments, and questions on coins and artefacts.
