PROBUS RIC 454 OFFICINA 618 viewsOBVERSE: VIRTVS PROBI AVG
REVERSE: VIRTVS INVICTI AVG (Emperor on horse spearing enemy begging on his knees and on a shield. In front of the horse, a winged victory flying to the right, holding a laurel wreath in her hand. No exergue line)
BUST TYPE: E1 = radiate, helmeted, cuirassed bust left, holding spear and shield decorated with floret
FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: -/-//VIXXT
WEIGHT: / AXIS:
RIC: 454
COLLECTION NO. 1407

NOTE: spectacular, extremely rare and desirable reverse type struck only at Ticinum during the 3rd emmission (after Probus' successful military campaign in Germania) in combination with an interesting military bust with shield decorated with floret. Despite the flan crack a true gem and coin of the highest rarity and numismatic interest!

Only the 3rd example of this exact type known to me (the remaining two are listed by S. Estiot in her 2006 article on the 3rd emmission of Ticinum under Probus "Une campagne germanique de l’empereur Probus : l’atelier de Ticinum en 277-278").

COLLECTION NO. 541

NOTE: EMPEROR ON HORSE + SOLDIERS ON SHIELD

THIS COIN IS PART OF AN UNPUBLISHED AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE GREEK LETTER EMMISSION WHICH WAS STRUCK SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH PINK'S LATIN LETTER 3rd EMMISSION.

This coin was struck from the same pair of dies as my coin no. 1106

Only the 5th known specimen in the world, including my coin no. 1106 which is the fourth known (INFORMATION FROM PH.GYSEN + MY OWN DATABASE)

Adventvs Probi Avg is a rare reverse type for Serdica in itself but in combination with the sole "A" mintmark from an unpublished, exceedingly rare greek letter phase of the 3rd emmission makes this coin it a true gem!

Probus antoninianii without mintmarks were either trial coins or (much more often) donativa coins. Their attribution to a given mint is based on careful analysis of the coin's style and die links.

This is the only example of this exact type in my database. Possibly an unicum! The coin shares however its reverse die without any mintmarks with my coin no. 1161 (but with E1 bust)

The coin is part of the very rare and brief A-Delta (without the KA mintmark) first phase of Serdica's 3rd emmission unlisted by RIC as well as by Pink. Although the exergue is barely legible, under a magnifying glass I see an "A" there rather than a Delta. Nevertheless I will have the coin cleaned which hopefully will make the exergue more legible.

Unique and of the highest numismatic interest. The coin joins another interesting unicum with an erroneous obverse legend in my collection: PRBVS instead of PROBVS - see my coin no. 21 from Siscia.

6TH KNOWN SPECIMEN TO ME (THE OTHERS BEING IN PH. GYSEN COLLECTION AND 4 SPECIMENS IN VEMANIA ISNY II HOARD)

This coin is part of the scarce first phase of Ticinum’s 6th emission (according to Pink’s emission classification) with greek numerals of officinae not accompanied by the XXI monetary reform mark. In the much more common and abundant second phase of 6th emission the greek numerals were followed by the XXI mark in the exergue.

Note: This coin was struck in the 7th workshop which opened in 280 A.D. and was operated by an engraver who came from Serdica. The style of the emperor's portrait and the lettering is clearly that of Serdica. The mint at Serdica temporarily closed in 280 A.D. and its scalptores went to open the 7th workshop at Siscia and the 9th workshop at Antioch - see S. Estiot, L’Empereur et l’usurpateur: un 4e atelier oriental sous Probus"; 2015, p. 264-265.

NOTE: extremely rare and desirable variety of the Adventvs Avg reverse where the emperor is marching RIGHT instead of LEFT.

This is apparently only the third known specimen in the world, the other two being in Vienna and La Venera hoard. My coin shares the same pair of dies as the Vienna specimen (information from Ph. Gysen) as well as the reverse die with the Venera specimen (information from J. Guillemain).

A coin of the highest rarity and numismatic interest!

According to S.Estiot this is a personification of Roma dressed as amazon (hence the nude breast).

Only the 5th known specimen, including my coin no. 541 which is the fourth known (INFORMATION FROM P.GYSEN + MY OWN DATATBASE)

Adventvs Probi Avg is a rare reverse type for Serdica in itself but in combination with the sole "A" mintmark from an unpublished, exceedingly rare greek letter phase of the 3rd emmission and a decorated shield makes this coin a true gem!
