Why add this ancient Billon Double Denarius of Romano-Gallic Emperor Victorinus to your collection?
The Romano-Gallic Empire was a relatively small territory that broke away from the northernmost region of the Roman Empire during the Crisis of the Third Century, and functioned as a separate state for the short period of A.D. 260-274. Marcus Piavonius Victorinus was ruler of the Romano-Gallic Empire from A.D. 269-271. This Double Denarius was struck from a metallic alloy called billon, a bronze base metal with a light silver wash.
