The last of ‘the Five Good Emperors’

Scarce in the exceptional quality seen here, and yet still surprisingly affordable, we are delighted to present a genuine Silver Denarius of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-180AD) – in about Extremely Fine!

Succeeding the Emperor Antoninus Pius, Marcus Aurelius was the last of ‘the Five Good Emperors’ before Rome slipped steadily into the Crisis of the 3rd Century. Marcus’ reign was an ominous  indication of what was to come, however, with Germanic tribes rampant to the north, the eastern frontier under attack from the Persians and Armenians, and plague devastating the Roman population.

A sensational opportunity to travel back to the 2nd century AD, this glorious silver denarius is almost as good as the day it was struck. Distinguished by stunning detail in the emperor’s portrait and the inscriptions, this spellbinding about Extremely Fine coin will lift any Ancient collection to the next level.
