Why purchase this Roman Imperial Billon Nummus of Maximinus II?

Fifty-ninth Emperor of the Roman Empire, Maximinus II led a reign characterized by constant Civil wars within the Tetrarchy for control of the Empire. This Nummus struck for Emperor Maximinus II is composed of billon (bronze with a silver wash), produced at the Thessalonica Mint, with a diameter of approximately 22 mm.

Classic Roman Imperial design

The laureate, draped bust of bearded Emperor Maximinus II adorns the obverse, facing right, framed by a beaded border and the inscription "MAXIMINVS P F AVG." This translates from Latin as "Maximinus: Pious, Happy Emperor."

The legend "IOVI CONSERVATORI" means "to Jupiter the protector," surrounds the image of the Roman god Jupiter on the reverse. Jupiter is portrayed standing, turned slightly left, wearing a chlamys over his shoulders, with a globe resting in his extended right hand, and a long scepter held vertically in his left. A wreath appears in the lower left field, with the Mint mark of Thessalonica, "SMTS" in exergue.

Graded Extremely Fine by NGC Ancients

The Ancient coin division of the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has authenticated this Billon Nummus as an issue of Roman Emperor Maximinus II, and graded it Extremely Fine. The coin features beautifully struck details and lettering, with the highest design elements flattened from circulation, similar to a coin earning the grade of 40 on the Sheldon Scale.
