Why buy this Roman Empire AD 209-211 Geta AR Denarius from the Seven Hills Hoard?

Rome has long been known as the City of Seven Hills, and a hoard of coins that was buried there around 250 AD was found not long ago, in that center of Western Civilization. That hoard includes this 209-211 Geta AR Denarius, which provides a glimpse into the brutality of Ancient Rome. Geta was the son of Septimium Severus, who wanted his two sons to rule together. After two years of a highly contentious arrangement, Geta's older brother, Caracalla, had him murdered by centurions in their mother's arms. Struck from 3.26 g of silver, this coin offers you the chance to have a glimpse into that important period in history.

Enlightening Geta Design

The obverse features a right-facing draped bust of Geta. The image is striking on account of the boy's youth. Rim inscriptions read, "P SEPT GETA CAES PONT" (Tribune of the People, Geta, Caesar, Greatest Priest).

On the reverse, Geta stands facing the left side of the coin in military dress. He holds a baton and a scepter, a symbol of his power. Behind him is a trophy. "PRINC IVVENTVTIS" (Prince of Youth) is inscribed along the rim.

Well Preserved XF

According to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), this coin is in Extremely Fine condition. That means that it retains complete or nearly details but may have some softness on design areas.
