I purchased the coin in 1980. This is my coin it is on loan to the British Museum, it is one of Britain's most important coins showing the Roman legions being addressed by Hadrian in AD122 at the period Hadrian instructed the building of the now called Hadrians Wall

Gotta give this a 5. The reverse resembles a bas relief.

This coin is worth tens of thousands, another coin in worse condition may be worth $500 or $50 if it's really bad. Condition is everything.

it doesn't get any better

Do they come any better? I doubt it! Fives stars are insufficient.

This is an example of a coin that is a numismatic treasure that I only dream of having in my collection. Is this coin still on display?
