A well-worn but affordable example a denarius of the Roman Republic. Coins like these were used for many decades, and on occasion even for centuries, and passed through countless hands.
In 77 BC, Quintus Lutatius Catulus successfully defended Rome against his co-consul of the previous year, Marcus Aemilius Lepidus, who, on being declared a public enemy by the Senate, had attempted to take over the city. Lepidus, the father of the future triumvir of the same name, fled to Sardinia, where he died shortly after.
