Denominations of Roman Coins

The RNG is not focussed on coin denominations, sizes, weights, or reference numbers such as from the Roman Imperial Coinage (RIC) catalogue.
Rather it centers on the artistic and historical value of the Roman coins, that are not shown in actual size but with varying degrees of enlargment.

For those viewers without own collection (we do feel sorry for you and recommend to remedy such deficit quickly) we include the below brief summary of denominations with actual sizes and weights. Please note that your screen resolution influences the size you see on your screen.

Coin Dies for Marcus Antonius Legionary denarius, and for Caracalla denarius, likely from ancient coin forgers.
