A very rare and collectable gold Aureus of the Emperor Trajan, struck at the mint of Rome around the year 100 AD. The obverse features the laureate head of the emperor, facing right with the abbreviated legend around, translating as ‘Imperator Caesar Nerva Trajan Augustus Germanicus’. The reverse shows Fortuna - the personification of luck - standing, facing with her head turned left, holding a rudder in her left hand that is set on the prow of a ship. She holds a cornucopia in the crook of her other arm. Trajan, the second of the Five Good Emperors reigned from 98 to 117 AD, presiding over a program of military expansion that saw the empire attain its maximum territorial extend. An excellent and attractive example. RIC II 34, Sear 3094, Calico 1048.
