Postumus A.D. 260-269, Billon Silver Antoninianus, Extremely Fine_obv

Postumus A.D. 260-269, Billon Silver Antoninianus, Extremely Fine

Postumus was the governor of Germany in A.D. 260 when the emperor Valerian was captured in the East. With the Roman world in crisis barbarian raiding parties were crossing the borders but his defeat of one group, the Juthungians, led to him being proclaimed emperor by his troops. He then managed to push the others out of the western provinces and re-established the old Rhine frontier, making him very popular! Gallienus failed multiple times to defeat him so the rebel Postumus was left in control of Britain, Gaul, Iberia and parts of Germany, forming what was called the ‘Gallic Empire’. In A.D. 269, Laelianus, the governor of Germany, rebelled against him and was defeated at the siege of Mainz. Sadly, Postumus was then murdered by his own troops for refusing to allow them to plunder the city! Postumus minted coins that had at least twice as much silver in than the coins being made by Gallienus’ central government in Rome. We offer these Billon Silver Antoninianus of Postumus with various reverses in Extremely Fine condition, meaning very limited wear since they were struck. Due to the crisis at the time that striking can be a little weak so first to order will get the best! It has been a while since we have been able to get a group of these, we have priced them to please, but we cannot guarantee the price will not have to go up in the future…

George V, Sovereign (Struck in India) 1918 Extremely Fine

In 1918 towards the end of World War I, the Royal Mint sent Sovereign dies to India to be used in the striking of gold sovereigns. These were the only Indian Sovereigns struck until just recently when some were struck for Queen Elizabeth II. These George V Sovereigns are struck in 22ct Gold and weigh about 8 grams, they are in Extremely Fine condition. A fantastic one-year type coin of King George V and of India. Worth thinking about adding it to your collection, especially at this price! Stock availability is limited, so we can only make available 2 coins per collector.
