Why order this Gold AD 610-641 Byzantine Empire Solidus of Heraclius

One of the most important parts of the hobby of coin collecting is connecting with the past, and a Gold Solidus of Heraclius gives you the chance to do just that. The solidus was first issued under Constantine. These were issued a few centuries later during the reign of Heraclius over the Byzantine Empire. Heraclius was known for reducing corruption and stopping Muslim advances in Asia Minor. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment, though, was the recovery of the True Cross, the Cross on which Jesus was crucified. The legitimacy of this artifact remains open to scholarly debate.

Heraclius, Heraclius Constantine and Heraclonas Design

The obverse features Heraclius, Heraclius Constantine and Heraclonas side by side. Heraclius is wearing a crown in the center. To the left is Heraclonas, who wears a cap. Heraclius Constantine is on the right. He wears a crown as well. A Cross is in the upper left. The reverse features a Cross Potent on three steps above the CONOB mint mark.

Well Preserved Mint State
