Why order this (AD 268-270) Roman Empire, Claudius II BI Double-Denarius?

Claudius Gothicus, also known as Claudius II, reigned briefly from 268-270 AD. During that time, he won a decisive victory over the Goths in the Battle of Naissus and also emerged successful against the Alemanni. Unlike the many other short-term rulers whose reigns ended violently, Claudius Gothicus died of illness, most likely the Plague of Cyprian, just two years after assuming Rome's top post. Struck from silver, this BI Double Denarius provides a look back at the period during which he reigned.

Powerful Claudius II Design

Claudius II features in right-side profile on the obverse. His bust is radiate, draped, and cuirassed. Rim inscriptions read, "IMP CM AVR CLAVDIVS PF AVG" (Emperor Claudius, Pious and Happy, Father of the Augusti).

Hercules stands facing the left on the reverse. He holds a club in one hand, and an animal skin in the other. "IVVENTVS AVG" is inscribed along the rim.

Well Preserved XF

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in Extremely Fine condition. That means that it retains complete details but has some minor wear on its high points.
