Why add a About Uncirculated Random Roman Empire Silver Denarius to your collection?
The Roman Silver Denarius was the most commonly circulated coin for nearly 450 years of ancient Roman history. First minted during the Second Punic War, around 211 B.C., the coin contained approximately 4.5 grams, or 1/72 of a pound of Roman silver. By the time the coin was eliminated from production in the middle of the third century, the weight of the coin had been reduced to just over 3 grams.
Roman Denarius imagery
A laureate portrait of the issuing emperor is typically featured on the obverse. Each ruler released a specific reverse design, with some emperors issuing several different designs. Common reverse themes included portraits of gods or goddesses, as well as illustrations of the emperor performing religious rites or celebrating a military 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.
