Why add this ancient Roman Silver Denarius of Faustina Jr. to your collection?

Faustina Jr. was Empress of the Roman Empire from A.D. 161-175. Married to Emperor Marcus Aurelius, she bore thirteen children for the Emperor, of which only a few survived to adulthood. She frequently accompanied her husband on military campaigns, earning the nickname "Mater Castrorum" (mother of the camps). Minted in honor of his wife, this silver denarius was struck during the lifetime of Faustina Jr., and the reign of Marcus Aurelius, A.D. 161-175.
