The Beast Coins VLPP Collection

Zach Beasley, formerly the owner operator of Beast Coins, and now the Senior Numismatist at Heritage Auctions, assembled a collection of Roman coins with Latin reverse legends abbreviating Victoriae Laetae Principium Perpatua. These reverse legends translate, "Joyous victory to the eternal Prince." We are pleased offer some of the coins from this collection, which are among the finest examples of the types.

Crispus, Caesar, 1 March 317 - 326 A.D.

Londinium (London today), established around 43 A.D., was sacked in 60 A.D. by the Iceni led by queen Boudica, but quickly rebuilt. At the end of the 1st century, Londinium was a cosmopolitan community of merchants from across the Empire and the capital of Roman Britain. In 286, the usurper Carausius declared himself the Emperor of Britain. In 296, Rome invaded and reclaimed Britain from his successor Allectus. Twice British legions rebelled and elected their own emperors, Magnus Maximus in 382 and Constantine III, in 407. Both crossed the channel with their legions and were defeated, leaving Britain largely unprotected. As the Empire declined, Britain became increasingly isolated. In 410, the Romano-British authorities appealed to Honorius for help. He replied that the Britons would have to look after their own defenses, meaning Roman occupation of Britain had ended. Britain was increasingly vulnerable to attack by the Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Frisii. By the middle 5th century only a small number of wealthy families maintained a Roman lifestyle. At the end of the 5th century the city was largely an uninhabited ruin.Londinium
