ERIC The Encyclopedia of Roman Imperial Coins
by Rasiel Suarez


Lucilla 

   c.149 Ė182 

Lucilla was the wife of Lucius Verus. After his death she remained influential through the marriage of a senator. In 182 a plot to overthrow Commodus was uncovered in which she played a role and she was subsequently banished to the island of Capri. Fearing that this might not be enough to prevent any future plans of the sort, Commodus had her executed shortly afterwards. 
 
Compared to the two Faustinae, the easiest of the 2nd century empresses to find, Lucillaís coins are not considerably more difficult to locate and not much more expensive either.  
Her coins are well represented in all denominations of the period but finding high grade copper will be challenging. An Aureus may be found in pricey auctions with reasonable frequency. This leaves Denarii as the most commonly available coins featuring this empress.  
In terms of rarity and prices her coins are right on par with those of Crispina.
