Vespasian, the founder of the Flavian Dynasty and he ended the Civil War and ushered in a time of peace for 27 years. He hailed from an equestrian family with political ties. As a military commander, he had immense success during the first Jewish-Roman War and in Britain. He was responsible for several important architectural projects, most notably the beginning of construction on the Roman Colosseum, or the Flavian Amphitheater. Coins struck during his reign served as propaganda throughout the Empire, depicting images of military victory and peace. History is kind to Vespasian and he is fondly remembered as restoring prosperity and peace to the Roman Empire. There was a great many of coins struck during his long reign in gold, silver, and copper.
The present specimen is a very pleasing extra-fine example with no distracting features. The devices are wonderfully centered and the rich golden color will please even the most discerning of collectors.
