VITELLIUS, A.D. 69. AV Aureus (7.39 gms), Uncertain mint in Spain, possibly Tarraco. NGC Ch VF, Strike: 5/5 Surface: 3/5. Fine Style. Edge Marks. RIC-34; Calico-576 (same rev. die). Obverse: Laureate head left, with globus and small palm frond at point of neck; Reverse: Victory flying left, holding round shield. An <strong>EXTREMELY RARE</strong> type, this entrancing specimen offers an incredibly lifelike and realistic portrait of this fairly brief emperor. A few light edge marks as noted are observed, but are not at all obtrusive, allowing this example to be a great representation in gold for this ninth of the famous "12 Caesars."
