Why buy this AD 222-235 Roman Empire Silver Severus Alexander Denarius?

Severus Alexander inherited a terrible situation from his cousin Elagabalus, whose assassination, which was instigated by his grandmother, led to his ascent to power. He was the second youngest sole emperor in Roman history, and his reign was characterized by peace and prosperity. During his campaign against Germanic tribes, he sought to bring peace through diplomacy and bribery rather than military conquest, which put him at odds with the army. This resulted in a successful conspiracy to assassinate and replace him, and his death marked the beginning of the Crisis of the Third Century. Now you can own a coin from the final heyday of the Western Roman Empire with this Silver Denarius.

Diademed Julia Mamaea Design

Julia Mamaea, Severus Alexander's grandmother, is depicted wearing a diadem on the obverse. She is shown in right-side profile and is mostly encircled by rim inscriptions. They read, "IVLIA MA-MAEA AVG" (Julia Mamaea, Augustus).

The reverse design features Fertility, who is seated facing left. She presses the left arm to her seat while extending her right hand to a child. Inscriptions along the rim say, "FECVND - AVGVSTAE" (Fertile Augsutae).

Well Maintained MS

Struck nearly 1800 years ago, this coin still does not have any traces of wear. That is why it received a Mint State grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
