Why order this Roman Empire AD 235-238 Silver Denarius of Maximinus?

For collectors who are fascinated by the power struggles and intrigue of the Roman Empire, this Silver Denarius is a fantastic choice. Maximinus I, who was also known as Maximinus Thrax, commanded the Legio IV Italica at the time of the assassination of Severus Alexander by his own troops. The Praetorian Guard selected Maximinus I as the successor. Just three years later, though, the Senate revolted and named five men Emperor in efforts to strip Maximinus of his power. He attempted to quell the rebellion, but was stopped at Aquileia, where he was assassinated by members of the Legio II Parthica.

Powerful Maximin Laureate Design

The obverse features a draped and cuirassed bust of Maximinus I. Shown in right-side profile, he has a thick beard. Rim inscriptions read, "IMP MAXIMINVS PIVS AVG" (Emperor Maximinus, Augustus).

The Emperor stands at the center of the reverse in military dress looking left. In his left hand, he holds a haste, and he has his right hand on a military sign. "P M - TR - P P P" (Greatest Priest, Tribune of the People, Father of his Country) is inscribed along the rim.

Beautifully Preserved MS

Nearly 1800 years after it was first struck, this coin remains in Mint State according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
