Why add this Silver Denarius honoring Faustina Sr. from the Golden Age Hoard to your collection?

Wife of Antoninus Pius, Faustina Sr. was Augusta from A.D. 138-141. Devastated by her death, the Emperor requested that the Senate deify her; he built a temple in her honor in the Roman Forum, and posthumously minted a massive amount of commemorative coins in tribute to her, such as this exceptionally preserved Silver Denarius from the Golden Age Hoard.

Beautiful commemorative imagery

The obverse depicts the elegant Empress Faustina, draped, facing right, with her hair adorned with pearls, surrounded by the inscription "DIVA FAVSTINA" (Divine Faustina). Reverse imagery varied, usually featuring a goddess representing the positive attributes of the Empress.
