Why add this Random Ancient Roman Silver Denarius to your collection?
The Roman silver Denarius was one of the most widely circulated coins of the ancient world. First issued in 211B.C. the Denarius was the main circulating coin of the Roman Empire for almost 450 years. Minted to support the empires conquests, one Denarius was the equal of one day’s pay for a Roman soldier. In an effort to continue spending above their means, the bankrupt Roman Empire gradually replaced the silver content with other base metals until the coin became practically useless as a means of commerce.
