This coin was minted in Rome just prior to his murder & death on March 15th of 44 BC. Produced especially for Caesar's Spanish Triumph in October of 45. Victory on the obverse in some way showing his prowess & military success as being one of the greatest military commanders of his day & eventually of all time. And the sacrificial jug on the reverse representing his dedication to the gods and republic. L. Munatius Plancus aurei were circulated after Caesar's triumph in October 45 BC. in commemoration of the final defeat over the Pompeians at Munda in 44 BC. This triumph raised eyebrows in that it was the first time a triumph was celebrated for a victory over fellow Romans. This event along with other actions of Caesar probably lead to his assassination several months later.
