The blank is often ascribed to a need for speed in striking this emergency war coinage. There are, however, more than a few other similar uniface coin types and one blank side would do little to speed up the mint.

This is often found in Britain, many of which may have been carried there by mercenaries retreating after Caesar's victories.
