NGC (VF) Roman Denarius of Faustina Sr. / Faustina I (AD 138 - 140/1). Faustina the Elder was of noble blood; Trajan was her great-great-great uncle. Her marriage to Antoninus Pius helped legitimize his claim to the throne-one of many examples of Rome's matrilineal lines of succession. Their marriage was a happy one, especially by standards of royal families.
When she died in 140 at the age of 40, the devastated Emperor ordered her deified; hence the inscription DIVA FAVSTINA on the coins made in her honor (diva means divine). Better Grade (VF) Very Fine. Certified Authentic, Graded and Encapsulated by NGC. NOTE: YOU MAY RECEIVE EITHER " VF " OR " CH VF " LABELS!
You Will Receive the Same Type of Coin and Condition Shown, Certificate Number Will Vary As Stock Photos Are Used.
