Series Key in Silver
Caligula was the great nephew of Tiberius and is believed by some to have finished off Tiberius while he was on his deathbed, although it’s often refuted that he couldn’t follow through with it. The first six months of his reign started uneventful and moderate, but his ego quickly took hold and an unquenchable thirst for power and excessive personal pleasures ensued. Although claiming oneself as a God was generally frowned upon by anyone in power, Caligula became so infatuated with himself that he forced many to worship him as a living God. He was ultimately assassinated by the Praetorian Guard and a group of Senators.
Among the top pieces ever graded by NGC, the present specimen features the head of Caligula facing right on the obverse, and Tiberius flanked by stars on the reverse. There is no doubt that this coin has been a part of major collections since it was struck-a truly landmark coin.
