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

Hadrian was Roman Emperor from 117-138 AD, third in the line known as the Five Good Emperors, who had the good fortune to sit on the throne during the most glorious days of the Roman Empire. Hadrian used this time of strength in the Empire to travel to nearly every Roman province. He ordered the construction of Hadrian's Wall, which delineated the northern border of the Britannia province. Portions of the eighty-mile-long wall still exist today and were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. The prosperity of the Empire enabled Hadrian to have a vast amount of coinage struck, with many different reverse images.

Imperial Denarius Design

The obverse depicts the laureate bust of Hadrian, encircled by the inscription "IMP CAESAR TRAIAN HADRIANVS AVG."

The standing image of Genius adorns the reverse making a sacrifice from a patera over a lit altar while holding stalks of grain.
