Why buy this Roman Empire AD 193-211 Sept. Severus AR Denarius from the Colosseum Hoard?

Take a trip back to the Roman Empire with this AR Denarius, which was discovered as one of over 2000 coins in the Colosseum Hoard. The coin dates back to the reign of Septimus Severus, who reigned from 193-211 AD. Severus's reign began when he deposed and killed Didius Julianus, the previous emperor, and it was consolidated when he defeated challengers Pescennius Niger at the Battle of Issus and Clodius Albinus at the Battle of Lugdunum. Severus died in Britain after becoming sick during his invasion of modern day Scotland, which was then known as "Caledonia."

Powerful Minerva Design

The obverse features a right-side portrait of the Emperor Septimus Severus. He is joined by the inscriptions "(L SEPT SEV) PERT AVG IM(P IIII)." This includes his name and indicates that he is the Emperor.

On the reverse, Minerva stands holding her shield and a spear. Minerva was the Roman goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare. Inscriptions on this face read, "P M TR P IIII (COS II P P)" (Great Priest Tribune of the People Consul 2 Father of his Country).

Beautifully Maintained XF

Over 1800 years after it was struck, this coin earned a grade of Extremely Fine from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That grade means that a coin retains complete details but has minor wear on some of the high points.
