Why purchase this ancient Bronze Nummus of Roman Emperor Constantine I?

This Bronze Nummus of Constantine I, struck at the London Mint, AD 307-337, is an exceptional example of the beauty of symbolism on ancient coinage. The reverse illustrates the sun god Sol with a globus in hand. The globus is a celestial sphere, representing the Cosmos with the Earth at its center. This image exemplifies Sol offering the Cosmos to Constantine, thus power to rule the universe.

Incredible Symbolic Imagery

The Emperor's laureate portrait is located on the obverse, encircled by the legend "IMP CONSTANTINVS P F AVG," meaning "Emperor Constantine, pious and successful."

The Roman god of the sun, Sol, is depicted on the reverse, with a globus balanced on his left hand. Inscriptions include "SOLI INVICTO COMITI" (To the invincible Sun, companion of the Emperor), "T" and "F" across the fields, with "PLN," the Mintmark of the London Mint, in exergue.
