No matter how beautiful the Marcus Aurelius, it is your Lucius Verus that I like best.

Yes the Marcus Aurelius is particularly beautiful, as is the Antoninus Pius and the Philip II. But the one I’d trade one of my motorcycles for (with the possible exception of the Ducati) is the Gallienus!

Every time I am happy to read your comments. Thank you! Smiley
The coins you responded are the highlights, but I love them all. That's why they are in my collection Tongue

Steve, what other motorcycles do you have? Ship one to me to Germany and I will send the Gallienus.

Jay, if you want to see the reverses, I will make a gallery with them.

Gosh kc don’t tempt me! The Harley has been giving me a lot of trouble lately! (My bikes are Suzuki GSXR 600, Harley Davidson XLH 1200 and Ducati 800 Super Sport)

I'm with Jay, and would love to see a gallery of the reverses.

Best Regards,
Steve

@Jay and Steve

Here the Gallery with the reverses. Not as spectacular as the portraits...

Do you find the mistake? Grin

Beautiful set of reverses you have there without doubt kc.  The temple of Janus with the doors closed is a reverse I have been trying to obtain a good example of for years (at a price I could afford).  Yours has the doors very nicely detailed, giving a clear impression of what these famous temple doors must have looked like in Nero’s time.
The Gallienus reverse is surprisingly good, at a time when it must be admitted the reverse was often not given the same attention as the imperial portrait. (All the more reason to be jealous!)  Then there are the two galley reverses, always desirable. But my favorite is the Ops reverse of Antoninus Pius, so well designed, graceful and pleasing to the eye. Thanks so much for sharing.

Best regards,
Steve

In the pic of reverses the Nero has been bumped up a level.

Nice coins!

Steve, a pleasure to share my coins with you and all fans of Roman coins. I have to thank!

Now I have added a few coins and put all in the correct order.

Based on the diameter of the coins you can immediately see when the "Big Roman crisis" was (beginning with Philippus Arabs).

Regards

That is a wonderful "wallpaper". My only problem, should I have to choose one, would be...which one !

Thanks for showing us

Two of the Piusses are real beauties, but no-one mentioned the great portrait on the Nero Claudius Drusus!
Fine set of coins!

To show the coins in this way is a great idea. Maybe you'll get some problems, when your collection will grow more and more: the file even now has 450 KB  Roll Eyes

Thanks for the reverses!

Along with my 12 Caesar's compilation I've been inspired by yours to also do an Antony compilation:

A sestertius of Gallienus from "VIMINACIUM", I asked myself? That would be a "coin of the year" for a specialist collector of either Gallienus or of sestertii, since Göbl knew no sestertii at all for Valerian or Gallienus from this series, and only a single specimen of one type for Salonina!

From kc's gallery I see however that the coin is actually an As. That's a bit of a relief, though it's still a very rare coin, apparently the second known specimen, since Göbl only lists one.

I must agree...that Gallienus portrait is nothing short of spectacular!  Well, I wouldn't trade a motorcycle for it since I don't own one, but I do have a Brazilian national jersey signed by the World Cup winning team of 2002!  Grin

Thanks a Million for all comments and to curtis for the correction.

@Noah

I do not think that I want to have the jersey from the World Cup winning team of 2002 because Germany
lost the final match against Brazil.  Sad

Looks like a wall chart. Very impressive, great range of colours.

Well done

That is a wonderful image to behold kc. The range of subtitle colours and patinas against the black background reminds me of a Roman mosaic.

Very nice collectionWink it's curious to see that the Aemilian sestertius of KC collection has the same obverse die of 3 or 4 Aemilians of mine.  Grin
