Item Description:

Includes glass top display box. You will receive the exact coin shown.

The Roman nummus was a small bronze coin that was widely used during the empire's later years. Introduced in the 4th century CE, it was made of a copper-based alloy and was created to address the shortage of gold and silver in the empire. The nummus became the most common coin used for everyday transactions and for paying soldiers and taxes. Despite their small denomination, the coins played a significant role in the empire's economy and they are considered valuable pieces of Roman numismatics.

Constantine I (dubbed "the Great") was a Roman emperor who ruled from 306 CE to 337 CE. He is known for his major accomplishments such as the Edict of Milan, which granted religious tolerance to Christians, the Council of Nicaea, where he established a unified doctrine for Christianity, and the construction of monumental structures like the Hagia Sophia. He died in 337 AD and was succeeded by his three sons, Constantine II who ruled over the western Roman Empire, Constantius II who ruled over the East, and Constans who ruled over Italy and Africa.
