Why add a Random Roman Empire Billon Nummus to your collection?
Emperor Diocletian's currency reform of 294 AD, which utilized the previous Augustan system as a guide, introduced five new coins into circulation, including the silver plated bronze Billon Nummus. The coin, sometimes referred to as a follis or centenionalis, suffered many reductions in size, weight and silver content from the 3rd-5th Centuries AD.
Traditional Designs of the Roman Imperial Billon Nummus
A laureate, draped portrait of the issuing Emperor typically adorns the obverse, surrounded by a legend naming the Emperor along with his title.
Reverse imagery was commonly used as a means to demonstrate the strength and power of the regime, depicting illustrious accounts of military victories and various patriotic themes.
