Why purchase this Roman Imperial Bronze Nummus of Maximinus II?

Maximinus II was the 59th Emperor of the Roman Empire, from AD 311 until his suicidal death in AD 313 in the wake of his defeat to Licinius I. This Bronze Nummus of Maximinus II was struck at the London Mint during his short reign.

Classic Roman Imperial Design

The laureate, cuirassed bust of bearded Emperor Maximinus II adorns the obverse, facing right, framed by a beaded border and the inscription "IMP MAXIMINVS P F AVG," which translates from Latin as "Maximinus: Pious, Happy Emperor."

The reverse depicts the personification of Genius, standing with a patera in his right hand, a cornucopia in his left, and a modius balanced upon his head. The inscription "GENIO POP ROM," meaning "to the guardian spirit of the Roman people," implies that the coin was struck as a dedication to the Genius of the Roman People. "PLN" in exergue and a star in right field are Mint marks of the London Mint.
