Why add this Roman Empire Sept. Severus, AD 193-211 AR Silver Denarius - The Colosseum Hoard | NGC VF to your collection?

This AD 193-211 Roman Empire Sept. Severus Silver Denarius will appeal to many collectors who like ancient coins, but it will be of particular interest to those with a deep interest in the history of ancient Rome. Septimius Severus was the only Roman Emperor between Lucius Verus, who died in 169, and Hostilian whose reign began in 251, to die of natural causes. The coin may also appeal to you if you are a student of precious metals and monetary history. During his term, Septimius Severus initially increased the silver weight of the denarius, but he later debased it to fund military expenses. His debasement of the denarius, according to many historians, had severe consequences for the long-term stability of the empire’s economy. On the coin, Septimius Severus faces to the right. Along the rim is the inscription “IMP CAE L SEP SEV PERT AVG IMP.” A variety of designs appeared on the obverse throughout his reign.

Roman Empire Silver Coins
I collected some old Roman Empire Silver Coins but they were not graded. The graded silver coins I received from MCM are all graded and kept in very well designed and protective cases. I like the coins very much.

Silver Denarius AD193-211
I never expected to receive a coin from the Roman Empire, this detailed for such a low price. It's a wonder who might have held this coin in their hand over the years. This is a coin I will treasure till I pass, Thank You MCM
