Why add this Silver Denarius struck AD 138-161 for Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius to your collection?

Antoninus Pius was the fifteenth ruler of the Roman Empire, from AD 138-161, ascending to the throne following the death of his adoptive father Hadrian. One of the Five Good Emperors, Antoninus enjoyed a peaceful rule during the most prosperous era of the Empire. The Silver Denarius was the most commonly circulated coin at the time, measuring approximately 18 mm in diameter, with a weight of about 3 grams, usually depicting a prominent theme of the realm.

Exquisitely Struck Denarius Design

A bearded right facing bust of Antoninus Pius appears on the obverse, his head adorned with a laurel wreath. Inscribed "ANTONINVS AVG PIVS P P TR P XVII."

Fortuna, the goddess of fortune, is depicted on the reverse, standing, with a ship's rudder in her right hand balanced upon a globe and a cornucopia cradled in her left arm. In the Roman religion, Fortuna was considered the personification of luck.

Photo Policy: MCM attempts to display product images shown on the site as accurately as possible. We take all of our photos in house and due to reflections on the mirrored or proof surfaces of a coin there may appear to be 'black' when there is not. If a coin has a color on it at all it will be described as 'colorized' in the description or title. Due to the large inventory we sell, we use stock photos. Serial numbers will vary from the image shown unless specifically stated in the product listing that the item pictured is the item you will receive.

The value of the coin is not determined by its precious metal content.
