T. Carisius denarius, 45 B.C. - head of Juno Moneta right, one lock of hair falls down her neck; MONETA behind. Rx: T CARISIVS, anvil die with garlanded cap of Vulcan above (some have interpreted it as a die punch), between tongs and hammer, all tools of the mint and the province of The goddess of the mint, Moneta. This particular type refers directly to the office of moneyer; the obverse alludes to the location of the mint, which was adjacent to the temple of Juno Moneta. Again, the reverse depicts the implements used by the mint workers to manufacture coins. This issue ws struck to meet the extreme demand for coinage to pay the veterans of Julius Caesar's quadruple triumph. Often found lightly struck and showing signs of hasty manufacture. Carisia (gens) defeated the Astures in Hispania and took their main town of Lancia (c.25 BC), his cruelty lead to a revolt in 22 B.C. Another of his coin issues identifies him as "triumvir monetalis", or moneyer of the Republic. Good silver, mass is 3.44 g. Crawford 464/2; Sear CRI 70; Sydenham 982; Carisia 1a. VF and better obverse than most, reverse is also well struck. Obverse has two test punches and unusual die error at the ear; edge also exhibits die overlap of obverse over reverse.
