Why add an Extremely Fine ancient Silver Denarius struck for a Random Roman Emperor to your collection?
Throughout history, coinage has been struck not only as means of currency, but as a method to spread ideas, gain political popularity, encourage religious beliefs, and celebrate achievements. This tradition continues today with the production of commemorative coinage struck by Mints worldwide. The Roman Silver Denarius is a remarkable example of this type of coin. The Denarius was struck for nearly 450 years, serving as a platform for Roman Rulers to celebrate their victories, and share their personal viewpoints.
Roman Silver Denarius design
Traditionally, a laureate bust of the ruling emperor appears on the obverse of the Denarius, surrounded by his inscribed name and title.
Reverse designs very by Emperor, with some issues illustrating the strength of Emperor, victorious in military conquest. Imagery also includes depictions of Roman gods or goddesses, symbolizing important themes of the regime, such as prosperity and faith.
