Why add this Roman Silver Denarius of Emperor Trajan to your collection?

Trajan, leader of the Roman Empire from AD 98-117, was the second of the Five Good Emperors, who governed the region during an extended period of peace and prosperity. Under Trajan's rule, the Empire experienced its greatest territorial expansion in Roman history, along with development in public building and social welfare programs, for which he earned the title "optimus princeps" (the best ruler) from the Senate. This Silver Denarius of Trajan struck at the Rome Mint measures approximately 18 mm in diameter.

Design Inspired by Roman Mythology

The obverse features the right facing laureate bust of Trajan with a drape across his left shoulder, surrounded by the inscription "IMP TRAIANO AVG GER DAC P M TR P."

The goddess Aequitas is portrayed standing on the reverse, holding a cornucopia and a balance scale, which symbolize the "honest measure" of justice, equality, and fairness. The Latin inscription "COS V P P S P Q R OPTIMO PRINC" represents an abbreviated list of the emperor's multiple titles and offices.
