Why add this ancient Silver Denarius of Roman Emperor Hadrian to your collection?

Emperor Hadrian ruled AD 117-138, during an especially prosperous era of the Roman Empire, allowing him to authorize the minting of a great many denarii. In ancient times, it was traditional to use coinage as a means to advertise the ideals of the regime. Hadrian took this opportunity to show his support for the development of the Roman provinces, by including imagery of provincial patron gods and goddesses on the reverses of his coinage.

Traditional Roman Imperial Design

The right-facing portrait of Emperor Hadrian appears on the obverse, bareheaded and with a full beard, surrounded by the inscription "HADRIANVS AVG COS III PP."

On the reverse, a partial-beaded border remains curving above and the figure of Salus, who is depicted standing beside an altar feeding a coiling snake form a patera held in her left hand. Inscribed "SALVS AVG." Salus was revered as the Roman goddess of safety and well-being, of both the individual and the state.
