Grade: Very Fine/Extra Fine

Customer Reviews

Highlight someone's collection with this attractive silver Antoninianus, hand struck from A.D. 244-249 under Philip II. Named Caesar at age 7, he rose to become emperor at age ten. In A.D. 248, his father (Philip I) threw a huge festival for the 1,000th anniversary of the founding of the city of Rome – a grand spectacle filled with lavish observances. Philip II was murdered just a couple of years into his reign (around the same time as his father), making this coin scarcer today. Give the gift of history, with this detailed issue!
