Coin (obverse), Denarius, of Tiberius Minucius Caii filius Augurinus

This silver coin was minted in Rome by Tiberius Minucius Augurinus, son of Caius, in 134 BC. It is a type called a denarius, the most common Roman silver coin. This picture shows the obverse of the coin.

The obverse portrays Roma, the goddess and personification of Rome, wearing a helmet. Behind her is a star, a mark of value.

The depiction of Roma on the obverse of the denarius was used for a very long time. While small variations occur, moneyers adhered to the basic design until around 100 BC. The depiction is a military one, with Roma in a helmet.
