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

This Roman Denarius was one of the most widely circulated coins in the ancient world. First issued in 211 BC, the Denarius remained in use for more than 450 years. However, Emperors from Nero onward gradually replaced the silver with other base metals in an effort to increase coinage. The coins became highly debased after 215 AD, and not long after the reign of Gordian III Denarii became bronze coins with a silver wash! While the silver content is higher than that on this denarius, it is still much lower than 50 years earlier.

The obverse design is a bust of Gordian III, shown as his 14 year old self with a shaved head. The legend "IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG" encircles this design. The reverse shows an image of Laetitia standing with the words "LAETITIA AVG N".

Many of these coins have been authenticated and certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a respected coin grading company. This example is graded CH AU, Choice Almost Uncirculated, with a comparable Sheldon Scale equivalent of 55-58.
