Gordian III - sestertius
Nice Gordian III sestertius, reverse : Providentia Aug.

It was minted in 238, and is probably the very first bronze issue as Augustus for this young emperor of only 13. I like this coin because of the portrait : Gordian tries to look serious, without the stupid smile he has on later issues.
