Denarius of Trajan

Glyn Peak sent in the images of this Roman silver coin and asked for it to be identified and valued.

The coin is a denarius of Trajan, whose dates are AD 98 to 117. On the obverse is a right-facing laureate head of the emperor and a legend that reads IMP TRAIANO AVG GER DAC P M TR P. On the reverse the standing figure of Felicitas holds a caduceus and cradles a cornucopia and the legend on this side reads COS V P P S P Q R OPTIMO PRINC.

In volume II of David Sear’s Roman Coins and Their Values denarii of this type are listed as number 3124. They were struck at Rome during AD 108. 


The obverse on Glyn’s find would grade good Fine but reverse is a bit weaker. In its present condition my price range would be £35-45.
