About the Piece

A 2.7gr silver Denarius coin minted in Rome, 241 A.D. with a sharp and well centered striking which has been well preserved and graded Extremely Fine set in 18k gold with a set white diamond bezel set in the bail. The goddess Diana shows on the front of the pendent holding a lit torch in both hands and looking to the right with the words DIANA LVCIFERA. On the reverse, the coin shows the words GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG with the laureate, cuirassed bust of Gordian. 

The denarius was the standard Roman silver coin from its introduction in the Second Punic War c. 211 BC to the reign of Gordian III (AD 238–244), when it was gradually replaced by the antoninianus. The word dēnārius is derived from the Latin dēnī "containing ten", as its value was originally of 10 assēs. The word for "money" descends from it in Italian (denaro), Slovene (denar), Portuguese (dinheiro), and Spanish (dinero).

You can feel confident that this coin is genuine, each coin has been inspected and approved to be authentic by a professional Numismatic who specializes in ancient coinage. A certificate is provided with this piece which guarantees the following coin to be from the period and date stated. 

Because the Roman Empire covered such a vast geographic area for such a long time, coins such as these are not actually as hard to come by as one might think. Throughout Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East, stashes of ancient currency like this are found every day. Buried for safe keeping by military personal in pouches or urns but never retrieved, metal detectors easily pick them up in the soil where they have sat undisturbed all this time.
