Coins of the Second Punic War

NUMISMATICS: NGC Ancient Coins: The Second Punic War (CoinWeek).
One of the most interesting and most challenging themes in the world of ancient coins is the Second Punic War, a monumental conflict in which Romans and Carthaginians battled each other for nearly two decades. At stake was supremacy over the Western Mediterranean. After its hard-won victory over Carthage in 201 BCE, Rome had established its regional authority beyond question.

Quite a nice collection. Cross-file under Punic Watch.
