Why purchase this ancient Silver Double-Denarius of Roman Emperor Trebonianus Gallus?
Trebonianus Gallus was ruler of the Roman Empire from AD 251-253. This Silver Double-Denarius struck during his short reign features familiar symbols of freedom: a personification of Liberty paired with a pileus liberates. The pileus was a soft wool cap worn by newly freed slaves. This liberty cap which served as a powerful symbol of freedom to the Romans is now recognized as the Phrygian cap depicted prominently on early U.S. coinage such as the Seated Liberty coin series and the Morgan Dollar, as well as the current American Silver Eagle.
Design Symbolic of Liberty and Freedom
Featured on the obverse is an image of the emperor in a radiate crown, encircled by the inscription "IMP CAE G VIB TREB GALLVS AVG," abbreviation for the emperor's regal name: Imperator Caesar Gaius Vibius Trebonianus Gallus Augustus.
The reverse depicts Libertas, the Roman goddess of Liberty, standing with a scepter held in her left arm, while holding a pileus liberatis in her right hand. Inscribed "LIBERTAS PVBLICA" (Public Liberty).
