Beautiful coins from of the Roman Empire are among the most popular and coveted pieces in any collection of historic coins. Of those, the most desired are pieces struck when Rome was at the peak of its power, such as these stunning Silver Denarius coins struck from AD 138-161 during the lifetime of Antoninus Pius, who was one of Rome’s so-called “Five Good Emperors.” These emperors were given that title because they reigned from A.D. 96-180 during a time when Rome was at its most peaceful, prosperous and largest. It was truly Rome’s golden age.

Antoninus was known as mild-mannered and capable, and his reign is notable for its lack of revolts or military incursions. A skilled administrator and builder, Antoninus never left Italy during his reign and upon his death he left the empire with a large surplus in the treasury. Landmarks bearing his name that still stand today include the Temple of Antoninus Pius and Faustina, which Antoninus had constructed in 141 in memory of his beloved wife Faustina. The portico of this temple was incorporated into the Church of San Lorenzo and located on the Via Sacra in the Roman Forum.

This silver denarius is considered to be one of the most important coins of that era. It circulated heavily throughout the Roman Empire and was used in all forms of payment from shopping in the market to paying soldiers in the service of Rome.
