Vic coins catalog with values

 

In the first century AD, the Romans defeated the Iberian Auzetes and destroyed their capital Ausa. One of the hills near the Meder River was chosen for the foundation of a new city, on the highest point of which a temple was built. During the period of Visigothic domination, Auso was the center of the episcopate. The city was supposedly destroyed by the Moors in the early 7th century.

In the 9th century, the Carolingian conquest led to a new settlement on the plain of Vic. After the creation of the county of Ausso (around 878), the ancient Roman town of Ausso was rebuilt. A castle was built on the site of the temple. The new town was named Vikus Ausonensis (i.e. suburb of Ausona, a name that apparently transformed into Vic). The episcopal cathedra was re-established and a new cathedral was built.

In the Middle Ages Vic was divided into two parts - episcopal (passed into the hands of the king in 1316) and feudal (owners of the castle of the Moncada family). The town grew considerably and was surrounded by a fortress wall, renewed in the 14th century. In 1450 the part of Vic belonging to the descendants of the Moncada family was sold to King Alfonso the Magnanimous.

In the late Middle Ages, due to the struggle of local feudal lords and wars with France, the city lost its former importance. During the war years, Vic supported Archduke Charles, and the defeat of the pretender in 1714 further contributed to his humiliation.

The economic boom of the 18th century led to a new growth of the town. In the 19th century Vic suffered from wars and economic crisis, but the construction of a railroad between Vic and Barcelona in 1875 helped its revival.
