Gordian III Æ Sestertii

Spread the love

A lot a people wanted a bronze Roman Sestertius. We sold out of all the issues. The only one I had more of was those of Gordian III. This was an interesting emperor for Gordian III is where we find the last silver denarius to be issued in any quantity. Following his assassination, the dominant silver coin becomes the antoninianus which was valued at twice a denarius. So this effectively becomes a major debasement event so these coins represent the start of the fall of the Roman monetary system.
