Why add this Random Roman Ruler Silver Denarius to your collection?
This silver Denarius comes down through the ages from the "Golden Age of Rome" and dates to almost 2,000 years ago. This random date coin is part of a collection that can be as old as 211 BC, or from the time of historical figures like Julius Caesar, Trajan, Mark Anthony, or Octavian. The Denarius fell out of favor and stopped being minted around 270 AD after more than 450 years in circulation. At its introduction, the Denarius equaled one day’s pay for a soldier and was almost pure silver. Future emperors spent lavishly on government operations and the Denarius paid the price as it was de-valued to pay the empires debt. At the end, the Denarius was almost worthless as a medium of exchange.
The coin you will receive is an excellent example of the Denarius. 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 and you can expect an overall sharpness of detail. It will exhibit light but even wear on the highest points of the coin, and traces of Mint luster remain. Our team of numismatic specialists will hand select and package a random date example from our available inventory. If multiples are purchased, they will make sure the coins vary if quantity allows.
If you’re looking to purchase your first ancient coin, this Denarius is the perfect combination of numismatic name recognition and authenticated quality. You will treasure this coin for many years to come. Purchase today from MCM today!
