Ancient Coins: The Roman Empire was the keystone of modern Western civilization. Language, religion, the arts and sciences, law and many other fields have been deeply influenced by their civilization which flourished over two thousand years ago. Money, the foundation of any modern economy, was a concept invented by the Greeks and revolutionized by the Roman people. Modern coins the world over still incorporate design features made standard by Roman emperors. Dirty Old Coins is a leading educational company that brings this rich historical legacy to life through hands-on learning.
