Why Order This AU Romano-Gallic Empire Double Denarius of Victorinus from the South Petherton Hoard?
Today, few are familiar with the Romano-Gallic Empire. Considering that this empire only lasted for about 14 years, that comes as no surprise. This Double Denarius was issued by the Romano-Gallic Empire. It was issued during the time of Victorinus, who was the Romano-Gallic Emperor from 269-271 AD. This coin is made of an alloy known as billon, which is a bit of a generic term for copper based alloys mixed with a small amount of other metals. This particular specimen was found as a part of the South Petherton Hoard, which was recovered in Great Britain in 2013. There were well over 7,000 coins in this hoard.
Emperor Victorinus is depicted on the obverse of this ancient coin. Victorinus appears to have plenty of hair and a beard. He is pictured with a very tall crown.
A standing figure can be seen on the reverse. It appears some letters or inscriptions were originally here as well.
This ancient coin was certified by the team of unbiased professionals at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). It was awarded the grade of About Uncirculated (AU), which indicates most of the original details can still be seen.
Add this NGC AU 269-271 AD Romano-Gallic Empire Double Denarius of Victorinus to your collection today.
