The first cities issuing Roman civic coinage were in Spain. Many Western European and North African cities were colonies with citizenship rights.

Others wanted the prestige of coinage issues as a matter of civic pride. Leading citizens contributed to building programs, coinage issues and  games to show their patriotism.

Such civic coins often display very interesting reverse types which in some way characterize or symbolize the city that issued them.

These coins range in size from 10 mm to medals of more than 40 mm, celebrating Imperial visits and other particularly significant events.
