About Augustus Coins

After collecting US stamps and US coins as a kid, I began collecting ancient coins in 1971. I wrote articles for the Journal of the Society for Ancient Numismatics (SAN) as early as 1980 and by 1985 I was publishing scholarly articles in the (Royal Numismatic Society's) Numismatic Chronicle (mostly on the development and applications of statistical methods for the analysis of ancient coins. By profession, I am a mathematician/statistician). In 1997 I begin one of the first and highest ranked sites for ancient-coin beginners on the web:
"Ancient Greek and Roman Coins, FAQ"
which has since been expanded many times to include numerous pages for collectors of every level from beginners to very advanced collectors.

 Coin prices are in square brackets: [$xx]

To arrange purchases, or just to enquire, e-mail me, Warren, at

Total cost is the amount in brackets plus minimal postage (only in the US: $2 for orders under $25, $3 for orders under $50, $4 for orders up to $100, and an additional $1 for each hundred thereafter. For shipping to Canada or Europe, add $3.)
If you are in Canada, the UK, or Europe, please pay with PayPal or TransferWise. If you don't know about TransferWise, I use it and highly recommend it for paying larger amounts. The fees are about 1/2% with a good currency-exchange rate instead of PayPal's near 4% fees with a poor exchange rate. Wrtie me and ask and I will tell you about it.
