Denarius of Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus

This is the last coin from a group of seven Roman denarii that came in from Ronin Dones. It bears the portrait of Antoninus Pius but it was struck after his death in AD 161.

On the obverse is the bare head of Antoninus Pius and the brief legend reads DIVVS ANTONINVS. On the reverse, holding a branch and resting on a sceptre, is the enthroned statue of Antoninus Pius with DIVO in front and PIO behind.

Denarii of this type were issued by Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus in honour of Divvs Antoninus Pius. They were struck at Rome in AD 162 and in volume II of Roman Coins and Their Values this type is listed as number 5194.

Valuation

The coin would grade good VF and it is well struck with attractive surfaces. In its present condition I’d say this denarius shouldn’t be worth any less than £120.
