    If a piece is gold-plated, the gold can wear and show the true metal underneath.

    of propaganda, or simply as a means of documentation. In the Roman Republic, coinage served as goods themselves, in a system of bartering, not like money used in modern times. Early Roman coins were stamped on the obverse only, serving as a display of the person or city responsible for the minting of each coin.
