Why add this Ancient Roman Silver Denarius Gordian III AD 238-244 of the Seven Hills Hoard to your collection?

This Roman Denarius is undeniably the most recognizable coin of the ancient world. First issued in 211 B.C. this was the coin of the realm for 450 years. The Denarius disappeared from circulation around the time of Gordian III due to vast inflation after 215 AD. At the time of its introduction, one Denarius was equal to one day’s pay for a Roman soldier. At the end, the Gordian Denarius commanded only a portion of its original purchasing power. Approximately 21mm, the Gordian III Denarius contains fairly small amount of silver with the rest of the coin being other base metals.

The obverse shows the image of the 14 year old Emperor Gordian III. He is pictured in a right-facing bust surrounded by the text "IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG". The reverse shows Laetitia standing with the words "LAETITIA AVG N".

Many of these coins have been authenticated and certified by NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation), a respected coin grading company. This example is graded AU, About Uncirculated, with a comparable Sheldon Scale equivalent of 50-53. This specimen Gordian III Denarius will be a treasured part of your ancient coins collection.
