Description
This genuine Ancient Byzantine gold coin has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold ring.

Justinian learned the art of imperial power under his uncle emperor Justin I. When his turn came to rule solely, he did so with remarkable skill and energy. During his long reign he solidified the empire, prevented Persian expansion, embarked on ambitious building projects in Constantinople, (including the construction of the great church St. Sophia), and the codification of Roman law. This very lovely gold coin shows the emperor facing frontally wearing diadem and holding a cross in right hand. On the reverse is a standing angel holding a long cross and a globe with cross. Due to the relative peace of the realm and general prosperity Justinian' s reign has been regarded as a Golden Age-- making the glittering gold of this coin even more special.
