Here are some of the coins that I added to CoinReplicas.com this past year.
One of the projects I worked on in 2013 was the complete works of Peter Rosa’s Roman Republic denarius coins thirty coins in all. They are offered in six sets of five coins per set the way Rosa sold them in the 1950’s in alphabetical order under the family name of the moneyer responsible for their issue. (You can also order the individual coins).
Rosa ordered them using the Ernest Babelon numbering system from Babelon’s 1885 publication “Description Historique et Chronologique des Monnaies de la Republique, bulgairement appellees Monnaies Consulaires.”
The Babelon system in also used in a later publication by H.A, Seaby in his 1952 publications Roman Silver Coins Vol. I part I “The Republic arranged according to Babelon” This is the book that Rosa used for reference. I still have is copy of this book.
