Just wondering, what are the cheapest prices that denarii of Augustus can go for? Thanks.
"For as long as Belisarius lives, it is impossible for him to relinquish this city." - Roman general Belisarius, responding to a group of Gothic envoys, during the Gothic siege of Rome in 537 AD

Attributed coins in my collection so far - Roman: 241, Byzantine: 44, Post-Roman Germanic: 24

Silver denarii of the Severans in very poor condition can be had for as little as 10 dollars, but I would not by one unless I wished to challenge myself to properly identify it. I such circumstances, a properly identified denarius it that condition may bring 15 dollars.

I have never seen denarii of Augustus marketed in such a lowly condition, but no doubt they are around. I guess that they may cost you a couple of dollars more than Severan examples in the same poor condition.

Eric II e-Books says that the Gaius and Lucius (August's intended successors) series are the most available and affordable. Approximately $100.00 each.

Here are two that I found on e-bay.

It does seem like there are an awful lot of copies of Augustus coins. Not saying there is or isn't anything wrong with the coins above. One says that it was used as a jewel. The other will return your money if "David Sear" says it is a fake:) I would be cautious before buying.

Damaged coins like the one with a broken button shank attached will always be cheaper even if genuine but it may be a fake and have been used as jewelry as well. I paid $30 for my Augustus that was pierced by a nail and hit with a hammer but it is a better type. The cheapest one would be a fourree with peeling silver of the Caius and Lucius type. The price would depend on just how ugly the coin you find really is.

Just very worn, an Augustus is unlikely to be under $100.
