Why add a NGC-graded Billon Half-Centenionalis struck for the Roman Empire to your collection?

The Billion Half-Centenionalis was introduced around A.D. 347, during the Constantinian Era of ancient Roman history. They were issued as part of a coinage reform that included several denominations of silver-plated bronze coins, known as a metallic alloy called billon. Following the death of Constantine the Great (Contantine I) in A.D. 337, the Roman Empire was jointly ruled by Constantine's three sons Constantine II, Constantius II and Constans, whose likenesses are found on many Half-Centenionalis coins.

Roman Half-Centenionalis designs

A laureate portrait of the ruling Emperor is the most common image depicted on the reverse, surrounded by an inscription of the ruler's name and title.

The reverse of the Half-Centenionalis was used by the Emperor as a method of self-promotion, illustrating victorious territorial conquests, his dedication to the Roman state, and various imagery reflecting the transformation of the Roman Empire from paganism to Christianity.
