Each ancient coin was struck by hand… so no two are exactly alike!
Few events in world history have made such a lasting impact as Constantine’s conversion to Christianity, and few people can ever own a genuine relic that dates back to this remarkable moment. But now, you can hold history in your hands, with…The Roman Empire’s First Coins of Christianity, featuring two genuine coins issued by Constantine the Great over 1,600 years ago — and which are rarely seen outside of museums and prestigious private collections.

Available exclusively from the Danbury Mint, the set is presented in a magnificent display case that is the perfect accompaniment to these timeless artifacts. The outside includes the “Chi Rho” symbol that combines the first two letters of Christ’s name in Greek (XP) and that served as Constantine the Great’s heraldic religious badge that was hung on his battle flag; the inside features the magnificent Vatican painting “The Vision of the Cross” that tells the inspiring story of Constantine the Great and the moments leading up to his conversion to Christianity.
