Why add a Billon Centenionalis of Roman Emperor Constantius II to your collection?

In the middle of the fourth century A.D., the pressure of inflation forced monetary reform to continue during the joint reign of Constans and his brother Constantius II, with bronze coinage being the first type to be modified. A new bronze denomination was introduced known as the "Centenionalis," with a weight of 4.5 g and a diameter of approximately 23 mm. The coin was struck from billon, a bronze coin coated with a light silver wash.

Roman Billon Centenionalis imagery

A laureate, draped portrait of Emperor Constantius II is illustrated on the obverse, surrounded by a legend declaring his name and formal title.

Following the trend of previous Roman Imperial coinage, Roman Emperors continued to use the Billon Centenionalis as a means of advertisement, depicting imagery to spread patriotic ideas and celebrate military victory.
