Large Roman Bronze Coin Ring

Sorry, this large coin ring is no longer available. We may, however, still have a similar one. 

This large oval coppery bronze Imperial Roman coin was found in Eastern Europe, then taken to Indonesia where we have had it handset into a large modern plain Sterling Silver Ring for us.

This coin dates from somewhere in the 1st to the 4th Century. I'm not sure which Emperor this is but when I have more time I'll update this entry, (but the half the fun of ownership is the hunt for background info.)

It's set into a simple, smoothly organic modern ring with no decoration.

We've deliberately left an opening in the back to partially reveal the reverse of the coin, there is possibly a standing God (Jupiter ?) over a seated devotee/Emperor (?)

The front surface is in good condition with nice definition, the surface has a dark shiny patina.

An occasional careful polish with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" will bring up the shine on the silver, when it needs it.

But be careful not to scratch or polish the coin as you would only be removing the patina of age.

The rounded sculptural ring will fit a larger finger size of "U" (which is about US 10.25)

You may also find Roman Coin Earrings, Pendants and Rings listed in our Antiques & Antiquities section as the coin is ancient even though tthe silver work is contemporary.

Age: Coin circa 1st -4th Century AD, Silver Contemporary

Size: Coin W 27 mm x H 25 mm. 

Weight: 20 grams
