Ancient Rome Tiberius Caesar Denarius 14AD to 37AD
Wow, what a cool coin, Carla. There is a growing segment of numismatics (coin collecting) that focuses on ancient coins. Most ancients come from Greece and Rome. With Tiberius Caesar on your coin, you can be sure it is from ancient Rome. It is something, in my opinion, to hold a piece of silver in your hand and know it comes from the time when Jesus Christ walked this earth. Amazing.
Checking auction and sales results from reputable web sites with ancient coins shows they catalog between $100 and $700 US dollars:
worn: $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $350
well preserved: $700
Coins in good condition without problems, like the one in our picture, hit the high end of that range.
Be careful of counterfeits, as they abound in the world of ancient coins. There are plenty of experts around the Internet, including those at ForumAncientCoins.
CoinQuest has a business relationship with VCoins.com and they are loaded with experts on ancient coins. In fact, I notice a coin like yours for sale on the VCoins site for $267 US dollars (do a search for Tiberius). If you like, contact VCoins and see what they think about your coin.
