Recall the prosperity of ancient Rome with this magnificent silver Denarius of Hadrian. Hand struck over 1,850 years ago, this exceptional coin features Moneta (Latin for "money") holding scales and a cornucopia. The graceful goddess personified the mint and coinage. In 390 B.C., to thank Juno for rescuing them from an attack by the Gauls, the Romans built the temple of Juno Moneta. Later, the mint was set up inside the temple. The legend MONETA and depiction of the goddess on these coins reflect the high quality of coins issued under Hadrian and the general prosperity of Rome under his rule. A true showpiece for any collection. Order yours today.
