Marcus Aurelius Fantasy Denarius, Silver Replica

Ave! 

Marcus Aurelius Fantasy Denarius, Silver Replica

AR; 2.9gm/18mm

OBV/ Laureated head right, M ANTONINVS AVG GERM SARM
REV/ Elephant walking right, MVNIPICENTIA AVG, COS III in exergue. Replica stamp below elephant.

This Denarius is fictive, or a 'fantasy type' = it never existed. The reverse belongs to Antoninus Pius; a scarce series of coins issued to commemorate 'Munificentia', the spirit of Imperial Generosity, upon the occasion of the celebration of Rome's 900th anniversary in 147-148 AD, with extensive shows in the arena of the Amphitheatrum Flavium.

Seller's Note/ We purchased these coins years ago...then forget them until now. In the meantime, they have all developed a lovely iridescent toning!
