Last week I posted an Augustus denarius with Tiberius as Caesar on the reverse. I was looking at the 3 12 Caesars sets and noticed that the 3rd set had a bronze coin of the Tiberius but rest were silver. I have decided to use the Augustus coin as the Tiberius for that set. That meant I needed another silver coin of Augustus.

This one popped up on Ebay last night and I grabbed it. I have always liked the Bull butting reverse for Augustus and this one was special. It had the bull butting left instead of the normal butting right. I know the coin is worn but I love the portrait and the reverse.

When this coin arrives I will have 3 complete 12 Caesars sets in silver.

Augustus. 27 BC-AD 14. AR denarius .
Lugdunum (Lyon) mint. Struck 10 BC.
Obv: AVGVSTVS DIVI F, laureate head right
Rev: IMP XII in exergue, bull butting left, lashing his tail.
RIC 189a (R2)
Purchased from Gatewestcoins on Ebay July 18, 2019

Quite nice despite the wear. A good coin to complete the third silver set. An amazing accomplishment - congrats.

Nice coin @orfew, but when will you trade these in these trifles and start your gold set of 12 caesars?
