Abstract: The following paper deals with the political use that was made of the coin in the Ancient Rome. Specifically, the use of currency as an instrument in institutional propaganda programs is analyzed, that is, at the service of imperial power throughout the 1st century AD. The work is framed above all in the Julio-Claudia and Flavia dynasties. The sovereigns treated in this paper came to power as a result of an armed conflict, so they had a great need for legitimation. In this sense, Emperor Augustus used the currency for this purpose, legitimizing himself both at a military and mythological level at the same time as legitimizing his heirs and thus consolidating his own dynasty. Vespasian, a century later, recovered the Julio-Claudian policy in almost every sense, the essence and the Augustan values as a means of legitimizing his government. For this reason, the work focuses on the Principalities of Augustus and Vespasian, delving into the many similarities that existed between the policies of both emperors and their respective dynasties, since the first princeps had become a reference on how to rule and control their own picture.
