Why add this Randomly Selected Roman Billon Nummus to your collection?

Together with the Silver Denarius and the gold Aureus, the Billon Nummus formed the backbone of Roman currency during the glory years of the Empire. The Nummus was in circulation from 300 B.C. to A.D. 400 and was minted in multiple sizes and denominations. The Nummus was basically Roman pocket change, and allowed people to participate in regular and frequent commerce for every-day items. Interestingly in Latin, Nummus simply means "coin." In an effort to make the Nummus appear more valuable, some Emperors minted them with a thin layer of silver on the surface. These were called Follis, or Bi-Nummus. After the Empire split into East and Western Empires, Rome no longer produced its own coinage after it was sacked a number of times.

Our team of numismatic specialists will hand select a random date example for your collection. The coin you will receive is an excellent example of the Nummus. It has been graded Extremely Fine, which is equivalent to a Sheldon Scale grading of 40 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This is one of the higher grades an ancient coin can receive, and you can expect an overall sharpness of detail and lettering. It will exhibit light but even wear on the highest points of the coin, and traces of Mint luster remain.

If you're new to collecting ancients, this Nummus is the perfect combination of numismatic name recognition and authenticated quality. Purchase yours today from MCM.
