Why add this Roman Imperial Silver Denarius from the Golden Age Hoard to your collection of ancient coins?

Faustina Jr., also known as Faustina the Younger, was a daughter of Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius and Roman Empress Faustina the Elder, the only child of the pair to survive to adulthood. Married to Marcus Aurelius in A.D. 145, she became Empress in A.D. 161 when her husband ascended to the throne of Emperor during the Empire's prosperous Golden Age. This Silver Denarius was struck in Rome under the authority of Marcus Aurelius.

Classic symbolic imagery

The obverse bears the image of Empress Faustina Jr., diademed, draped, and facing right, accompanied by a legend describing her name and title.

As was typical for Roman Imperial coinage, the reverse of the coin you receive will portray a god or goddess, symbolizing a philosophy of the Empire.
