Why order this 209-211 AD Roman Empire Geta Silver Denarius?

Ancient Rome was plagued by bitter feuds for power, often involving relatives. Such was the case with Geta and his older brother, Caracalla. Geta's father, Septimius Severus, named him Augustus in 209. He had to share the title with his older brother, Caracalla, who had held the title since 198. After failing to assassinate Geta just nine days earlier, Caracalla asked their mother to arrange a peace meeting. There, he had Geta murdered by centurions in his mother's arms. This Silver Denarius of Geta offers you the chance to have a connection with that bitter rivalry.

Youthful Geta Design

The obverse features a right-side portrait of Geta. The young leader looks like a child, which is fitting given how young he was when he assumed the title Augustus. He is flanked by the inscriptions " P SEPT GETA" (Tribune of the People, Geta) and "CAES PONT" (Caesar, Greatest Priest).

Victory is depicted flying toward the left side of the coin on the reverse. She holds a diadem in her hands. To the left is a shield, which rests on a base. Rim inscriptions read, "VI-CT AE-TERN" (Eternal Victory).

Well Preserved XF

This coin was graded Extremely Fine by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. Coins in XF condition retain complete details and have only minor wear, which is limited to the high points.
