Why purchase this Roman Empire 69-79 AD Silver Denarius of Vespasian?

Few figures in the long history of Ancient Rome compiled resumes that could match that of Vespasian. He rose to power on the strength of his military successes, which included serving as a legate during Rome's invasion of Britain in 43 A.D. and leading the subjugation of Judea following the uprising in 66 A.D. His tenure began in 69 A.D. following the suicide of Nero and three short, civil war plagued stints, by emperors in what became known as the Year of the Four Emperors. He served for a decade and was the first Emperor in the 27 year reign of the Flavian dynasty. His work as Emperor included the initiation of several architectural projects, most notably the Roman Colosseum. This denarius gives you the chance to step back in time to a critical part of Rome's history.

Powerful Emperor Vespasian Design

On the obverse is the Laureate head of Vespasian facing right. The Emperor bears a stern countenance. His likeness is encircled by the inscriptions "IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG" (Emperor Caesar Vespasiaun, Augustus).

On the reverse, the goddess of Peace, Pax sits on a stool facing left. She extends an olive branch, a symbol of peace, forward in her right hand, while holding a caduceus in her left. Rim inscriptions read, "COS ITER - TR POT" (Consul, Path - Tribune of the People).

Beautifully Preserved VF

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin a grade of Very Fine. That means that it has sharp digits and letters, as well as moderate design detail.
