BC 211-208 VB Silver Victoriatus : NGC MS

BC 211-208 VB Victoriatus MS Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£1,100.00
Roman Republic. An anonymous issue silver Victoriatus, dated between 211-208 BC, with a head of Jupiter facing right to the obverse. The reverse shows the standing figure of Victory placing a wreath on a large trophy. On this coin a ‘VB’ appears in-between the figure and the trophy, which might indicate that it was struck in Vibo Valentia in southern Italy though there is some debate about the meaning here. These silver coins appear at the same as the silver denarius though in a different metal composition and had a weight roughly equivalent to a drachm or half nomos. There was a great need for silver coinage in Rome at the time as the city needed to pay its allies in the Second Punic War. They were primarily used to pay soldiers in Greek-speaking southern Italy. This is a very highly graded example of an interesting Roman coin. An excellent addition to any collection of ancient currency.
