As for Augustus' Penny, this piece belongs to the Imperial workshop of Lyon and this type of denarius circulated during practically a century.

Comments: Starting from Tiberius, the weight of the denier slightly decreases and seems to be calculated at 1 / 84th book instead of 1 / 82th under Augustus, (theoretical weight 3.66 g instead of 3.96 g). This size will remain valid until the reform of Nero in 64. Lyon was the only workshop to strike gold and silver under the reign of Tiberius. The type with the Peace (or Livie seated) had a longevity unmatched since it was struck throughout the reign.
Livia could be represented on the reverse side of this denarius. Tiberius' mother died in 29. This denarius is also the New Testament, when Jesus is shown a denarius with the effigy of Caesar (Tiberius), and his interlocutor tries to deceive him by asking him: Should we pay tribute to Caesar?
Knowing their hypocrisy, Jesus answers them:'Why do you try to deceive me, give me a denarius and I will tell you. And they held out to him. And he questioned them:'To whom is the image and the legend of this play. And they told him, They were of Caesar.
Then Jesus said to them,'Return to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and give back to God what belongs to God', taken from the Gospel of St. History: Tiberius, the son of Tiberius Claudius Nero and Livia, was born on 16 November 42 BC His father, was Caesar's lieutenant during the war in Alexandria (48-47 BC). Octave removed Livia, the mother of Tiberius, and the wife in 38 BC while she was pregnant with Nero Drusus. His reign will last 23 years.
