Why purchase this Roman Imperial Bronze Nummus of Constantine I?

Fifty-seventh Emperor of the Roman Empire, AD 307-337, Constantine I (Constantine the Great) was the first Emperor to convert to Christianity. Constantine ordered the confiscation of gold, silver and bronze statues from pagan temples for the purpose of melting and minting into circulating coinage. Struck from bronze at the London Mint, this Nummus was minted during Constantine's reign.

Remarkable Design Details

Emperor Constantine I appears on the obverse, cuirassed and wearing a wreath of laurel, surrounded by a beaded border and the inscription "IMP CONSTANTINVS P F AVG," which translates as "Emperor Constantine, pious and successful."

The reverse portrays the Roman sun god Sol, with a chlamys draped on his left shoulder, right hand raised, left hand holding a globus. Inscribed "SOLI INVICTO COMITI" (To the invincible Sun, companion of the Emperor), with the London Mint marks: "T" and "F" in the fields, "PLN" in exergue.
