Why add a graded Billon Centenionalis struck for the Roman Empire to your collection?
The Billon Centenionalis was first introduced in the middle of the fourth century A.D., as part of the monetary reform of joint Emperors Constans and Constantius II. The coin was minted in the Western Roman Empire until ceased by an edict of Western Emperor Honorius and Eastern Emperor Arcadius in A.D. 395; production of the coin continued in the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantine) until well into the reign of Theodosius II, around A.D. 425.
Billon Centenionalis designs
The most common obverse design features the portrait of the reigning Emperor, in the traditional draped pose, crowned with a laurel wreath.
Imagery on the reverse of the Billon Centenionalis frequently illustrated scenes with a military theme, promoting the strength of the Emperor and the Roman Empire, including depictions of military fortifications, soldiers taking captives, and the Emperor and/or soldiers celebrating victory.

We take all of our photos in house and due to reflections on the mirrored or proof surfaces of a coin there may appear to be 'black' when there is not. If a coin has a color on it at all it will be described as 'colorized' in the description or title. Due to the large inventory we sell, we use stock photos. Serial numbers will vary from the image shown unless specifically stated in the product listing that the item pictured is the item you will receive.
