Why add this About Uncirculated Ancient Roman Empire Billon Double Denarius of Aurelian to your collection?
Aurelian was the 44th Emperor of the Roman Empire. His five-year reign, from A.D. 270-275 is marked with numerous military success, including the restoration of the Empire's eastern provinces as a result of his conquest of the Palmyrene Empire in 273. Aurelian conquered the Gallic Empire the following year, enabling the re-establishment of the entire Empire, effectively instigating the termination of the Crisis if the Third Century, and earning the nickname "Restitutor Orbis," which means "Restorer of the World." This Double Denarius of Aurelian is a superbly struck example of a billon coin of the period, composed of bronze or copper, plated with silver.
The denomination of a Double Denarius was distinguished by the radiate crown adorning the portrait of the reigning emperor. Reverse designs were frequently military in nature, advertising the emperor's varied successful territorial conquests, or sometimes illustrated a god or goddess, symbolic of a philosophical theme of the regime.
