The Byzantine Empire is known by many to be the Eastern Roman Empire. This empire existed from 476 A.D. to 1453 A.D. Many ancient Byzantine coins are best known for their Christian imagery and most often depict portraits of Jesus. The most popular of these coins are the bronze follis, gold solidus and gold histamenon. Many historians and numismatists consider these coins to fall into the ancient rare coin category since the process of creating them was very similar to that of roman coins.
