Why purchase an ancient Roman Imperial Billon Nummus struck 3rd-5th Centuries AD?
Emperor Diocletian introduced the Nummus is his monetary reform of 294 AD. The new system was based on the denarii, not as a coin, which disappeared from production about fifty years earlier, but as a unit of account; one billon (silver plated bronze) Nummus was equal to twenty-five denarii, while one gold Aureus, revalued with the reform, was equivalent to 1,200 denarii.
Roman Billon Nummus Design
An image of the ruling emperor appears on the obverse, traditionally draped and crowned with a wreath of laurel, accompanied by an inscription of name and title.
Imagery on the reverse of the coin provided an opportunity for Roman Emperors to publicize their victories, or spread tenets of the empire through symbolic imagery.

Photo Policy: MCM attempts to display product images shown on the site as accurately as possible. We take all of our photos in house and due to reflections on the mirrored or proof surfaces of a coin there may appear to be 'black' when there is not. If a coin has a color on it at all it will be described as 'colorized' in the description or title. Due to the large inventory we sell, we use stock photos. Serial numbers will vary from the image shown unless specifically stated in the product listing that the item pictured is the item you will receive.
The value of the coin is not determined by its precious metal content.
