Postumus Antoninien.jpg
Postumus - antoninianus37 viewsIMP. C. POSTVMVS P.F. AVG
PIETAS AVG , Pietas standing left holding two children, two more at her feet.

I love Postumus' portrait on this one, he looks like Santa Claus. Maybe it's because of the children on the reverse. The reverse die style is typically gallic.

RIC 320

Gordien III sesterce.jpg
Gordian III - sestertius65 viewsNice 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.
