This is a ceramic keychain with a replica of a coin minted in Tarraco (Roman Spain/ Hispania), first century AD.

Tarraco, today Tarragona, was one of the principal places of Hispania (roman Spain). The full name of that city at that time was Colonia Iulia Urbs Triumphalis Tarraco. It was founded by Gnaeus Cornelius Scipio during the course of the Second Punic War, between Romans and Carthaginians. Played an important role in the cultural Romanization of the Iberian Peninsula. In 27 BC, Augustus himself reached Tarraco, staying there for a period of two years, and conducting military operations against the Cantabrians. When peace came, Tarraco greatly flourished thanks to the emperor himself. They minted their own coins with elements of the imperial cult. When the emperor died and was deified, there was was built a temple dedicated to him in gratitude, and this building appears on the reverse of the coin that reproduces this keyring (on the obverse, the deified Emperor Augustus), It was coined at the time of Tiberius. Currently, this temple is thought to be under the Cathedral of Tarragona. The archaeological site of this ancient city was is a UNESCO world heritage.
