A new exhibition at the Israel Museum titled ‘Faces of Power’ presents a collection of 75 gold coins, never before displayed to the public, bearing the portraits of Roman emperors and their wives.

The coins offer a rare glimpse into the world of the rulers of the Roman Empire, as well as revealing the great artistic skill involved in their creation.
