Why order this Bronze Ancient Roman Constantine I Sol 307-337AD ?

Christian and other collectors interested in the history of Western civilization will appreciate this first coin of Christianity. Constantine I worshiped Sol Invictus (the Unconquerable Sun) early in his life, but he converted to Christianity following his victory in the Battle of Milvian Bridge. Before the battle, Constantine saw a vision of the Cross and believed that it led him to victory. Constantine believed that Jesus Christ and Sol Invictus were one in the same and merged the two religions. He authorized the striking of this coin, which helped to spread Christianity throughout the empire. Beneath the reverse design is a "PTR" mint mark, which indicates that the coin was struck in Treveri, a.k.a. Trier.

Stunning Sol Invictus Design

The obverse features a right-side portrait of Constantine. It was standard at the time for the Emperor's portrait to appear on coinage. Along the rim are inscriptions of his name and titles, "IMP CONSTANTINVS AVG" ("Imperator Constantine Augustus," or "Constantine, Emperor and Commander in Chief").

On the reverse is Sol Invictus, whom Constantine believed was the same as Jesus Christ. He is depicted as a man wearing a radiate crown. A Latin inscription on the rim reads, "SOLIS INVICTO COMITI" (Sol Invictus, Companion (of the Emperor)).

Well Preserved VF

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in Very Fine condition. That means that it retains at least moderate design detail and has sharp digits and letters.

Don't miss your chance to own this 307-337AD Ancient Roman Constantine I Bronze Sol.
