Aurelian Billon Antoninianus _obv

Aurelian Billon Antoninianus GVF

After a long and successful career in the army Aurelian was declared emperor by his troops on the death of Claudius II Gothicus in A.D. 270. His reputation alone defeated his rival Quintillus who committed suicide after his troops deserted. His short, violent five year reign saw the defeat of the rebellious ‘Palmyrene Empire’ in the East and the breakaway ‘Gallic Empire’ in the west, restoring the fractured Roman Empire to its largest size in 15 years. He also began the construction of a great defensive wall around the city of Rome, large sections of which are still standing today. As was common at the time, he died at the hands of his own men in A.D. 275. We offer Billon Antoninianus of Aurelian in Good Very Fine condition showing his radiate bust on the obverse and with various reverses. As always with coins of this period some will have weaker reverses, the first to order will get the best!

Trajan Silver Denarius in Fine

Trajan has one of the best legacies, ancient or modern, of any Roman emperor! When later emperors were sworn in it was wished they be ‘luckier than Augustus and better than Trajan’. He literally set the bar for what the Romans saw as a good ruler. Today he is one of the ‘Five Good Emperors’. Trajan was born in A.D. 53 at Italica, in Spain, his father had been a consul and governor of Syria. Trajan rose quickly and because he was so popular, importantly with the army, he was adopted in A.D. 97 by the reigning emperor Nerva. Following the death of Nerva the next year, Trajan became emperor. His 19 year reign saw three major conflicts which led to the territory of the Roman Empire being increased to its greatest size. Within the Empire Trajan was a great builder, to name a few projects: the Forum Traiani, Trajan’s Market, an amphitheatre for sea battles and a new harbour at Ostia. He also established a number of Colonies for retired soldiers and in Italy set up a charity to help orphans and poor children called the Alimentia, shown on one of his rare coins. His most famous and lasting monument is perhaps Trajan’s Column which can still be seen in Rome. When he died he was buried beneath it with Hadrian becoming emperor. We have not been able to offer a group of Trajan’s coins for many years, especially his silver Denarius! They are becoming increasingly hard to find, as he is such a popular emperor, but with much searching and persistence we are able to offer them to you here at a Fine grade with various reverses.
