Why add this Roman Empire Silver Hadrian Denarius, struck AD 117-138 to your collection?

Hadrian was the 14th Emperor of the Roman Empire, ruling from AD 117-138. Hadrian spent more than half of his reign outside the borders of Italy, visiting and encouraging growth within the Roman provinces. He supported the development of provincial towns with their own customs and laws, rather than enforcing Roman constitutions on the newly formed colonies. During Hadrian's reign, the Denarius was the most widely circulated form of coinage, measuring approximately 18 mm in diameter, with a weight of 3.41 grams.

Impressive Silver Denarius Design

The obverse features the draped, laureate bust of a bearded Emperor Hadrian, facing right, encircled by the inscription "IMP CAESAR TRAIAN HADRIANVS AVG."

Reverse designs of Hadrian's coinage varied greatly, some depicting mythical figures, while others celebrated military triumph. This coin features imagery combining both themes, portraying Victoria, the goddess of Victory, seated facing left, cradling a branch of palm in her left arm, while she reaches out with her right hand holding a wreath.
