Why add this ancient Roman Imperial Silver Denarius to your collection?

Marcus Aurelius was the last of the Five Good Emperors, ruler of the Roman Empire from AD 161-180. His death in AD 180 marks the conclusion of the Pax Romana (Latin for Roman Peace), which was a peaceful period of Roman history beginning with the reign of Augustus in 27 BC. Marcus Aurelius is remembered as the philosopher king, author of the philosophical work now known as "Meditations," a notable source to modern understanding of Stoic philosophy. This Silver Denarius was struck at the Rome Mint, AD 161-180, with a diameter measurement of about 19 mm and a weight of approximately 3 grams.

Multiple Images of the Emperor

The laureate portrait of Emperor Marcus Aurelius adorns the obverse, surrounded by the legend "M ANTONINVS AVG TR P XXVII."

The Emperor is again depicted on the reverse, standing while grasping a branch and scepter. Inscribed "IMP VI COS III."
