Nero Gold Coin

Faced with Valerian's larger army, Aemilianus' men mutinied and killed him, throwing their support to Valerian. Aemilianus reigned for only three months.

This posthumous and idealized portrait includes symbols of Alexander’s deification, one of which is the ram’s horn, characteristic of the Egyptian god Amon.

Hungarian gold bullion coin. Minted in 2010, this coin was struck in 986 fine gold, exclusively in Proof quality with a maximum mintage of 30,000 pieces.  Splendidly depicted on the coin’s obverse, the crown’s peculiar bent cross has been the source of much speculation over the centuries. But while this has fuelled the mythology surrounding the crown, its most probable explanation is a prosaic one, the cross being bent by the heavy lid of the case in which the crown was kept.
