First struck by Roman Emperor Diocletian as part of his monetary reform late in the 3rd Century, the Roman Billon Nummus would go on to become one of the most important coins in the Roman empire and the backbone of currency used in everyday transactions. Over the next century, this coin would undergo many changes including weight changes, value, metal purity and, of course, the changing face of the emperor featured on each coin.
Now you can hold one of these ancient coins in your hand – actual pocket change that probably circulated in Roman markets, or may have even been used to purchase admission to a gladiator contest or pay for admittance to a public bathhouse during the heyday of the Roman Empire. The Roman Billon Nummus was minted late in the 3rd Century and continued to be struck until the early 5th Century. As the coin changed and evolved over time, some were struck with a thin layer of silver on the surface. These were called Follis, or Bi-Nummus.
