Notes:     Sale: CNG 76, Lot: 1051 Extremely rare, only three specimens cited by Frolova, this the only one not in a public collection. The extremely rare gold coins struck by Cotys I for Claudius and Britannicus represent the only gold coins with the portrait of Claudius’ natural son. Approximately 10 specimens are known of these types, dated to three different years (RPC 1912-4; MacDonald 314-6). This coin was struck in the last year prior to Claudius’ adoption of Nero in AD 50.
