About the Author
Rasiel Suarez is owner and co-founder of Dirty Old Coins, LLC, a
company founded in 2002 with the vision of bringing the hobby of
ancient coin collecting to a broad demographic largely unaware that
owning genuine ancient coins was both possible and affordable. 2005
saw the release of his first book, The Encyclopedia of Roman Imperial
Coins, which broke new ground in making the subject much more
accessible to those entering the hobby.
By 2007 the company had sold
over one million Roman coins by way of retail-ready coin kits that
taught thousands of families how to restore these ancient artifacts
using the same methods museums use. His success as an author and
recognized expert in the field of Roman numismatics was cemented by
the release of the second edition of his Encyclopedia in the Fall of
2010. An avid traveler and photographer, Rasiel lives with his family
in Olympia, Washington.
