Following the slow dissolution of the original Roman Empire in the early centuries of the first millennium AD, another empire rose in place of the Romans that was rooted in the practices and military dominance of the Roman Empire: the Byzantines. The Byzantine Empire was seated at the nexus of the European and Asian continents and its gold coins eventually became the standard for international trade and commerce in the Middle Ages. Provident Metals currently has stunning Byzantine Empire Gold coins available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase these Byzantine Empire Gold Coins, you receive each product inside of a protective plastic flip. The coins in this listing are unique compared to many other gold bullion specimens in our online catalog. Given the age of these Byzantine Empire Gold Coins, many are rough circles with designs pressed into the surface. All of these gold coins were produced before the invention of modern coining presses, giving these gold coins ancient charm.
Provident Metals selects each Byzantine Empire Gold Coin for you at our discretion once your payment has been processed. We are not able to promise particular designs to you and would like you to note that it is possible to receive matching gold coins if you purchase more than one.
The obverse face of these Byzantine Empire Gold Coins includes a portrait of the ruling Byzantine emperor from its period of issue. The busts are typically based on historic paintings and other portraits of the leaders.
On the reverse side of Byzantine Empire Gold Coins, you will find various Christian symbols represented as chosen by the emperor ruling at the time. The Byzantine Empire, which formed from the Eastern Roman Empire, was one of the first majority Christian empires in the world. Its coins reflect the adoption of Christianity as an official religion with varying symbols of the faith on the reverse of the gold coins.
As the Roman Empire began to crumble, a decision was made to split the empire between two rulers to attempt to better manage the massive empire. The Western Roman Empire remained at the seat of power in Rome, while the Eastern Roman Empire was established with a seat of power in Constantinople, modern-day Istanbul. Between 395 AD and 476 AD, the Eastern Roman Empire issued the same coinage as the Western Roman Empire. As the Western Roman Empire began to crumble and the power of the Eastern Roman Empire grew, it became known as the Byzantine Empire and started to issue its own gold coins in 476 AD. This continued through 1453 AD when the empire fell to the emerging Ottoman Turks.
