Why add a Roman Empire Random Ruler Billon Half-Centenionalis to your ancient coin collection?

The Billon Half-Centenionalis of the Roman Empire is a medium-sized, silvered coin introduced about a decade after the death of Constantine the Great around A.D. 347. Like many of the coins minted during this period of Roman history, the Centenionalis was struck from billon, a metallic alloy composed of only a light wash of silver over a base material, usually bronze or copper. The coin measures approximately 16-18 mm in diameter.

Imagery of the Roman Half-Centenionalis

The obverse image most often portrays the reigning Emperor adorned with a wreath of laurel, though there are examples of Half-Centenionalis coinage bearing the portraits of other members of the ruling family. Inscriptions declare the Emperor's name and title.

The reverse typically depicted a theme of patriotism or propaganda, paying tribute to the Emperor, celebrating a military victory, or proclaiming the importance of the Roman state.
