These are brothel coins depicting various sex acts one could purchase legally throughout Rome. The original coins have been plated in 24kt gold.

There's no cunnilingus coin but I guess men don't pay to go down.  Interesting that the culture that brought us Christianity had such a lax attitude toward sex work....something we lost as it spread through Europe and the New World.
