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

This ancient coin is a beautiful example of a Silver Denarius struck at the Roman Mint during the reign of Antoninus Pius, AD 138-161. Antoninus Pius was the fourth of the Five Good Emperors, who ruled for nearly a century in a period of peace, artistic advancement and economic growth.

Symbols of Roman Mythology

The obverse features an image of Antoninus Pius, right facing, his head adorned with a wreath of laurel. Inscribed "ANTONINVS AVG PIVS P P TR P XVI."

The goddess Vesta stands on the reverse, grasping a simpulum in her right hand and the Palladium in her left. The simpulum is a long handled ladle-like vessel, used at religious sacrifices and often associated with Vesta. The Palladium is a statue linked to the destiny of Troy, guarded in the Temple of Vesta. The Palladium appears on many issues of Roman Imperial coinage, based on the popular belief that preserving its image would ensure that the Empire would flourish. The inscription "COS IIII" stands for "Consul Quartum," meaning "Consul for the fourth time."
