Product Description

AD 98-238 AR Denarius Roman Empire - Colosseum Silver Denarius Hoard 

This hoard of silver denarii was buried at a time of great turmoil in the Roman world – almost certainly as a measure to prevent its discovery. The earliest coins date to Nero (A.D. 54-68). The latest coins in the hoard are of Gordian III (238-244), the last emperor to silver strike denarii. The denarius was the standard silver coin of the Roman world from about 211 B.C. up through the early 240s A.D. – a period of more than 450 years. Classical historians often say the denarius was a day’s wages for unskilled workers or common soldiers. From the late 40s B.C. onward it was standard for denarii to bear the portrait of their issuer. Thus, each of these denarii has the portrait of a member of the ruling family. Quite often it is the reigning emperor, his wife, a child, or an heir-apparent. The reverses bear a variety of designs, though usually showing a god, goddess.

This coin is made from Silver (ranging from high purity to 25% pure), denoted by the AR next to its denomination.

Coin will come with either Caracalla, Elagabalus, Geta, Hadrian, Julia Domna, Maximinus I, Septimius Severus, Severus Alexander, or Trajan as the ruler. If you are interested in a specific ruler, please make a note when checking out and we will do out best to accommodate you.
