The Decline and Fall of the World's First Silver Empire

Currency debasement is a dead giveaway of an empire set to decline

The Roman Denarius was used as currency throughout the Roman Republic and Empire. The denarius was initially minted of nearly pure silver and was about the size of a U.S. dime. Towards the end of the Roman empire there was little or no silver at all in the denarius.


The early Roman Repubic minted coins of 95-95% silver

Silver content in the Roman Denarius fell as the costs of empire grew
