My main collection is a Liberty $2.50 set but I have a small collection of Roman ancients purchased as a teenager in the 1970's. A 1st Century aureus has long been a dream coin. Now years later I finally purchased one at this week's Heritage sale.

What made up my mind was the chance to purchase a Titus aureus. When I read Suetonius ages ago I recall thinking that Titus was one of the better, but short reigning, emperors unfortunately overshadowed by his famous father Vespasian and his cruel brother Domitian.
