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.

Choice Very Fine Ancient Billon Centenionalis

ModernCoinMart's collection of randomly dated Billon Centenionalis struck for rulers of the Roman Empire during the 3rd-5th Centuries A.D. was authenticated and graded by the Ancient coin division of the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, NGC Ancients. Each coin received a grade of Choice Very Fine, Choice Very Fine, which is comparable to a Sheldon Scale grading of 30-35, and will exhibit nearly complete design details with obvious wear on the highest surfaces of the coin.
