Why add this Roman Republic Silver Denarius to your collection of ancient coinage?

During the period of the Roman Republic, moneyers were the public officials in charge of the design and supervision of minting the Republic's coinage. The most commonly circulated coin at the time was the Silver Denarius, first struck around 211 B.C., and minted until the early third century A.D. Issued by moneyer M. Sergius Silus, this coin represents a beautiful example of a Silver Denarius struck for the Roman Republic c. 116-115 B.C.

Classically styled Denarius design

Roma, the female personification of the city and civilization of Rome, is depicted on the obverse, wearing a Corinthian helmet, facing right. Inscribed "EX S C," with "ROMA" behind.

The reverse is inscribed with the moneyer's name "M SERGI SILVS" below the image of a horseman on a horse galloping left, grasping a sword and a severed Gallic head.
