Gordian III, Moesia Superior, Viminacium AE Sestertius Very Good

Gordian III was proclaimed sole emperor of the Roman Empire at the age of thirteen! Very little is recorded of the events of Gordian’s six year reign, which in ancient writings is usually a sign of peace and prosperity. At this time Viminacium was a city in Moesia Superior, modern Serbia. At 40,000 inhabitants it was so big it had been given the right to mint local small change. Well, they’re not so small! They are Bronze, roughly 30mm and weight about 15g. A solid coin! They show Gordian’s head on the obverse with the goddess of Moesia on the reverse flanked by a lion and a bull. They grade Very Good with some showing a little corrosion so they are priced accordingly. As well as your collection they will make great presents for a youngster or anyone interested in history.

Severus II (A.D. 305-307), Quater Follis Fine

Severus II (A.D. 305-307) is a very hard emperor to find as he is struck coins for less than two years. When Galerius elevated his childhood friend (Severus) to Caesar, Diocletian is meant to have said, “What! That dancer, that habitual drunkard who turns night into day and day into night?” Regardless, Severus was made Augustus after a year and sent to shut down the rebellion of Maxentius. His army defected, he was captured and eventually executed by the rebels. We have a limited number of his bronze Quater Follis coins showing his bust on the obverse and various reverses. They grade Fine and are priced accordingly
