Celebrate the prosperous reign of Emperor Hadrian with this genuine silver Tetradrachm! Struck over 1,800 years ago, it features the Manus Humana on its reverse. A symbolic gesture showing two hands clasped together, this was used throughout Rome to signify an agreement or friendship. These coins were struck in Egypt – considered the emperor’s personal property and the breadbasket of the empire, which provided free allotments of grain to Rome’s citizens.
Hadrian was the third of Rome’s “Five Good Emperors” (successive rulers known for their favorable policies, overall prosperity and peace). Today, he is best known for ordering the construction of a wall that stretched 80 miles, and marked the empire’s northern border. Offered here in your choice of two high-quality grades, these coins still show great detail. Order today!
