The first dynasty of the Roman Empire, the Julio-Claudians, came to a dramatic end with the suicide of Nero in A.D. 68. Galba, governor of the majority of Spain, proclaimed himself emperor and marched on Rome. He proved a heavy-handed and incompetent political player, quickly alienating the Emperor’s honor guard, the Praetorians, as well as the Senate.

Every month (closing on the first Sunday of the month) these iAuctions will contain world and/or ancient coins, with the inclusion of some very notable highlights such as this piece — the “First Half Dollar of the New World.”

In the first two parts of this story about the Dr. Conway A. Bolt Collection, I described the type of collector he was and how influential he was in the numismatic world while he was collecting.

Among the early scarcities of the modern commemorative China mint issues are the Piefort gold issues of the 1980 Olympiad. From a mintage of only 500 pieces, these were already a scarcity at the time of mintage, and remain a tangible reminder of the epic Olympic games of that year. The specimen being offered in our sale is graded Proof-69 Deep Cameo by PCGS and is accompanied by the original box and certificate.
