Trajan Gold Aureus NGC CHMS 5×4
Trajan Decius Gold Aureus NGC CHMS 5×4
This gold aureus of Trajan Decius, who ruled Rome from only 249-251 AD, is tied with 2 others as the finest examples ever certified by NGC Ancients.
Because he ruled for such a short time, his coinage is very hard to find in any condition, particularly as fine as the current example.
He is featured on the obverse in lifelike fashion with the goddess Libertas, standing, on the reverse. NGC has graded only 29 examples in all grades. This nearly perfect, stunning and flashy example is a centerpiece to any fine ancient collection. Coin shown is exact coin you will receive.
