Why purchase this Billon Double Denarius struck for Romano-Gallic Emperor Postumus?

The Roman-Gallic Empire was established by Postumus in A.D. 260, taking advantage of the instability in Rome during the Crisis of the Third Century to do so. The short lived break away Empire was retaken by Aurelian in A.D. 274. This stunning Double Denarius of Romano-Gallic Emperor Postumus was struck A.D. 260-269, from billon, a metallic alloy containing bronze with a thin coating of silver, weighing about 3.3 g, with a diameter of approximately 20 mm.

Beautifully detailed design

The draped and cuirassed likeness of Emperor Postumus adorns the obverse, wearing a radiate crown, with the legend "IMP C POSTVMVS P F AVG," meaning "Commander Caesar Postumus: Pious, Happy Emperor."

Reverse imagery depicts Felicitas standing, with a long grounded caduceus in her right hand, a cornucopia in her left, accompanied by the inscription "FELICITAS AVG" (the good fortune of the Emperor). Felicitas was the goddess or personification of success and good luck, and a prominent symbol of wealth and prosperity on Roman coinage.

Impressive About Uncirculated ancient coin

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's ancient coin experts graded this Romano-Gallic Empire Billon Double Denarius About Uncirculated, which is comparable to a Sheldon scale grade of 50. Expect this exceptional coin struck A.D. 260-269 to exhibit remarkable strike and surface conditions: complete design details with traces of wear at the highest points and more than half of its original Mint luster remaining.

This Billon Double Denarius of Romano-Gallic Emperor Postumus belongs in your ancient coin collection!

Photo Policy: MCM attempts to display product images shown on the site as accurately as possible. We take all of our photos in house and due to reflections on the mirrored or proof surfaces of a coin there may appear to be 'black' when there is not. If a coin has a color on it at all it will be described as 'colorized' in the description or title. Due to the large inventory we sell, we use stock photos. Serial numbers will vary from the image shown unless specifically stated in the product listing that the item pictured is the item you will receive.

The value of the coin is not determined by its precious metal content.
