Just a few thoughts. 

In this discussion there are several references to Legions XXIV through XXX.  I believe there are only 23 numbered legions in this series (if you count LEG PRI as a numbered legion rather than a named legion).   

However, five legions are known to be numbered in two ways (#4-IIII/IV, #8-IIX/VIII, #9-IX/VIIII, #14-XIV/XIIII and #19-XIX/XVIIII). 

In addition, three are three legions that are numbered AND named: ANTIQVAE (legion XII); CLASSICAE (legion XVII); and LYBICAE (legion XVIII). 

Also, there are two legions known only by name:  CHORTIVM PRAETORIARVM and CHORTIS SPECVLATORVM (again, assuming you count LEG PRI as a numbered legion rather than a named legion). 

Finally, and in addition to the foregoing silver issues, there are nine known gold coins in the series: CHORTIVM PRAETORIARVM, and Legions II, IV, VI, XII, XIII, XIV, XIX and XXII. 

That's a total of 42 coins known to be in the series. 

I have images of all of the above except LEG PRI and the gold versions of CHORTIVM PRAETORIARVM, II, IV, VI, XII, XIII, and XIV.  (Actually, I have images of LEG PRI, and the gold IV and VI, but they are from books and are of poor quality, as well as the reverse of CHORTIVM PRAETORIARVM).  If you have images of any of these I'd like copies, please.

Thanks.

My own collection of the Mark Antony legionary coins took about 5 years to assemble (on a very limited budget). Except for a couple of date variants, I had all the silver coins except for the elusive LEG. PRI. The coins were acquired by FORVM, and so you can see images of them in the Catalog (under "Sold", of course).   Smiley

This is a collection I aspire to have however I want ALL of Antony's coinage not just the legionary series!  It will be a long road but the fun is in finding the missing links!

You've set yourself a fascinating but difficult task! The legionary coins (with a few exceptions) will be almost the easiest part of it. There are lots of rare and obscure Mark Antony coins, like for example this (halved) piece, probably from Cyrene, naming Cleopatra as "queen" and "goddess" but Antony only as "consul".
