This is the Julius Caesar coin that was featured on the famous television show called Pawn Stars. I made this article to tie in all the different videos I have on the topic of ancient Greek and Roman coins. I did not wind up selling the coin as the proprietor Rick did a low-ball offer on my coin, you can watch the episode here, called Rick the Emperor.

Authentic Ancient  Coin of:

Julius Caesar – Roman Dictator –
Silver Denarius 19mm (3.89 grams) Struck at the mint of Rome February-March 44  B.C.
P. Sepullius Macer, moneyer
Reference: RSC 40; B. 48; B.M.C. 4175; Syd. 1074a; Craw. 480/14
CAESAR DICT PERPETVO, laureate and veiled of Julius Caesar head right.
P . SEPVLLIVS MACER, Venus Victrix standing left, holding Victory and scepter,  star set on ground to right.

On this coin, Julius Caesar breaks tradition of prohibiting the portraying of  living individuals on Roman coins by showing his own portrait on it. It was  considered a practice of Eastern Greek monarchs rather than the Republic that  Rome was still supposed to be. This could have been seen as a clear sign of  Julius Caesar styling himself after king issuing such a coin. This coin, along  with other factors may have been what culminated in the assassination of Julius  Caesar on March 15, 44 B.C. Venus was the patron-goddess of Julius Caesar, and  also the goddess whom his family traces it’s decent from, and therefore she is  pictured here holding the goddess of Victory. The interesting thing about this  coin is that it features a lifetime portrait of Julius Caesar in the short time  that he issued this coin before being assassinated. Being minted for only a  short time February to March of 44 B.C., this is a historically significant coin  and a must-have key piece for an ancient coin collection. The portrait of Julius  Caesar was used by historical personages such as Mark Antony and Augustus (first  Roman emperor) after his death as a tool to assume the political power and love  the people had towards Caesar. The portrait coins that were issued during the  lifetime of Julius Caesar, therefore, as they are scarcer in number than many of  his other issues, and being minted for a very short time is something of great  historical value as being from a key historical point that has echoed to our  times and made Western Civilization the way it is today.
