zoom view

Denomination : AR Antoninianus.  Mint : Rome.

Date : Joint reign with Gallienus, about AD 253 to 255.

Size : 19.2 x 22.1 mm.  Weight : 3.41 grams.

Reference : Sear-9938.

Grade : gVF but the surfaces are just a trace rough.

Obverse : Head of Valerian I, with IMP C P LIC VALERIANVS AVG around.

Reverse : Fides Militum standing left with head right, holding two standards, with FIDES MILITVM around.

This is one of Valerian's, early issues that appear silvery, although they are probably no more than 20% silver.  Over all, this is a pretty nice example of a Valerian I.
