Why add this Roman Empire 218-222 AD Sildver Denarius of Elagabalus to your collection?

When most people think of Roman bacchanalian revelry, Caligula comes to mind. Though lesser known by most people, Elagabalus was not far behind. He assumed power at the age of just 14 thanks to a revolt against his predecessor that was instigated by his aunt. During his short reign, he ignored military and state affairs and instead focused on satisfying his worldly appetites. His behavior isolated him from the Praetorian Guard, the Senate, and the people alike. Known as Heliogabalus by birth and Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus as leader, he was assassinated and replaced by his cousin, Severus Alexander, just four years after assuming power. This Silver Denarius gives you the chance to own a piece from his short, troubled reign.

Youthful Elegabalus Design

The Emperor's youth is apparent in his right-facing portrait on the obverse. Adorned with a laureate, it is partially encircled by rim inscriptions that read, "IMP ANTONINVS PIVS AVG" (Emperor Antoninus, Dedicated Augustus).

Elegabalus also features on the reverse. He stands facing left near an altar. Elagabalus standing left by altar holding a club. A star is included to the left. Along the rim are the inscriptions "PM TR P III COS III P P" (Greatest Priest, Consul III, Father of his Country).

Beautifully Maintained MS

This coin earned the adjectival grade Mint State from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
