Why purchase this ancient Silver Denarius of Roman Empress Julia Domna?

Julia Domna was the second wife of Roman Emperor Septimius Severus. As Augusta (Empress), she accompanied her husband on military campaigns and was respected by both the Emperor and troops for her military advice and political opinions. Following the death of Septimius Severus in AD 211, she continued in her advisory role as Augusta to her sons Geta and Caracalla, who shared rule of the Empire. This silver denarius of Julia Domna was struck AD 193-217 in Rome with a diameter of approximately 18 mm.

Portrait of the Empress

The obverse features the right facing image of Julia Domna, draped in an imperial gown, framed by an inscription describing her name and title "IVLIA AVGVSTA."

Felicitas is depicted standing on the reverse, holding a caduceus aloft in her in right hand and long scepter in her left. Inscribed "FELICITAS." As the goddess of happiness and good fortune in the Roman State religion, the appearance of Felicitas on Roman coinage is symbolic of wealth and prosperity in the Empire.
