Super High Grade Probus AE Silvered Antoninianus. Ancient Roman Imperial Coin
Here I present to you a very beautiful large AE antoninianus of emperor Probus. The obverse and reverse depictions are superb, and highly collectable too. This is an absolute must have for all collectors! Probus /Latin: Marcus Aurelius Probus Augustus; c. 19 August 232 September/October 282, was Roman Emperor from 276 to 282. During his reign, the Rhine and Danube frontier was strengthened after successful wars against several Germanic tribes such as the Goths, Alamanni, Longiones, Franks, Burgundians, and Vandals. The Agri Decumates and much of the Limes Germanicus in Germania Superior were officially abandoned during his reign, with the Romans withdrawing to the Rhine and Danube rivers. Top quality, and a good addition to any collection. A nice portrait and reverse gives this coin real character and appeal. I want this particular coin to go to a good home…. This is an ancient artefact / coin and should appeal to all numismatists either amateur or professional. The item “Super High Grade Probus AE Silvered Antoninianus.
