My ancient Roman coins. This is what got me started in treasure hunting, when one day I found an ancient Roman coin in a shopping mall parking lot. I thought it was a penny. Instead it was 4th century Roman coin. Roman coins can be bought online in high quality, medium quality or low quality condition. They are found in Europe and the mideast. In Roman times, there were no banks, and so people buried them to keep them safe, or, like today's coins, they were simply dropped and lost. Please enjoy my collection.
