ANCIENT COINS AVAILABLE AT ORIGINAL FACE VALUE!
By Joel Anderson

How would you like to purchase ancient Roman silver coins, over 1800 years old, for their original face value. It is not as hard as you might think. According to the Bible the standard wage for a laborer was one silver Denarius (Mark 20:1-2). An ancient Roman silver denarius can be still purchased for about the same price today. At minimum wages a laborer is paid about $45 per day (before taxes). A common ancient Roman silver denarius in Very Good condition can be purchased today for about the same price ($30 to $40). Even after nearly 2000 years the coin is still available at its original face value!.

On the other hand one had been able to invest the coin in a bank at 2% interest, compounded over 1800 years, the investment today would be worth over $96,000,000,000,000,000. But that is another story.
