112 Probus (276-282 A.D.), AE-Antoninianus, RIC V-II Not in , Siscia, FELICITAS AVG N, Bust-C, -/-//XXI, Felicitas standing left, Extremely Rare!!!
avers:- IMP-PROBVS-INV-AVG, Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right. (This bust not listed in RIC from this type!!!)
revers:- FELICITAS-AVG-N, Felicitas standing left by altar, holding caudeus and cornucopiae.
"Thank you for showing this very rare coin reverse FELICITAS AVG(usti) N(ostri), Felicitas holding a long caduceus and a cornucopiae: the draped bust seen from front is unlisted in Alfldi's work on the mint of Siscia under Probus (so ref: Alfldi 32, -), I know it from another coin in a private collection, which shares the same obverse die as yours >> unreferenced coin, two specimens, one obverse die.
The new reverses introduced at that time in the Pannonian mint of Siscia celebrate Probus as "Augustus noster" (Our Emperor) as the emperor is of Pannonian extraction. The marking which omits the officina number is a clue for an issue of common base aureliani minted parallely with an imperial donativum in gold.
Very nice coin..S. Estiot" Thank you S.Estiot.
