There has never been an empire to rival that of ancient Rome. But in the second century A.D., the empire reached its limit. Time and again over the following centuries it was pulled back from the brink of collapse by the leadership of its emperors. Each sought to re-establish Rome’s glory. All left their mark on history.
The Fall of the Roman Empire features thirty-six genuine, hand-wrought bronze Roman coins, bearing thirty-six different imperial portraits. Spanning a total of over 250 years, these coins are witnesses to the battles, conspiracies and betrayals that led to the collapse of the world’s greatest empire.
The magnificent, exclusive display is modelled on the Colosseum, the most iconic of all Roman buildings. A monument to the power of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum could hold over 50,000 spectators. This one holds just 36 coins, but it’s still an impressive sight! With two removable trays house the coins, and a space at the bottom to store the special-edition fact cards, this is the perfect way to showcase such a historic collection.
Display measures 4” tall and 11” in diameter.
