Denarius of Antoninus Pius

Paul Tongue told me that this coin was unearthed during a group dig on 14 May. I was asked to provide full details including a valuation.

The coin is a silver denarius of Antoninus Pius, whose dates are AD 138-61. On the obverse is the laureate head of the emperor and a legend reading ANTONINVS AVG PIVS P P IMP II. On the reverse the standing figure of Aequitas holds scales and a cornucopia and is accompanied by a legend reading TR POT XXI COS III.

In volume II of David Sear’s Roman Coins and Their Values denarii like this one are listed as number 4130. The type was struck at Rome during AD 156-57.


The second part of the legend on the obverse isn’t clear and there is dirt in some of the crevices but this denarius is otherwise in about VF condition. In its present state of preservation I’d price the coin at £40.
