Roman Silver Denarius of Faustina Jr., AD 147 – 175/6

This Roman Denarius is undeniably the most recognizable coin of the ancient world. First issued in 211 BC this was the coin of the realm for 450 years. At the time of its introduction, one Denarius equaled one day’s pay for a Roman soldier. Emperors from Nero onward gradually replaced the silver with other base metals, rendering the coin virtually worthless. Approximately 21mm, the Faustina Jr. Denarius is a mixture of silver with other base metals.

Empress Faustina Jr. was married to Marcus Aurelius and bore him 13 children. Faustina was partially scorned by her subjects, due to scurrilous rumors of her adultery. The alleged affair with a gladiator may have produced the future Emperor Commodus. She was a military wife and held in esteem by the Emperors soldiers. In 175 AD, Faustina died from an accident at the military camp in Halala. The obverse is Empress Faustina Jr. draped right bust surrounded by the text "FAVSTINA”, “AUGUSTA”. The reverse design of the coin you receive will vary among many common designs.
