This is but one coin that upped my collection to a new level. There are only five known examples of this coin:

  1. My coin
  2. The BMC specimen (cited by Strack and Cohen)
  3. The ANS specimen
  4. The Reka Devnia hoard specimen in Sofia (cited by Strack)
  5. The specimen illustrated in Temeryazev and Makarenko (no. 132).

Pay attention to the left-facing bust of Faustina the Elder and the Pulvinar of Juno reverse type, because you might see something similar in this week's edition of "Faustina Friday"! 😉

To avoid the six hour rule (12 always felt punitive and this game is about fun) I'll use my cheat code and post my fourée :

This is the first coin I ever bought at an auction house. It was a CNG e-sale back in march 2017. I have since parted with it.
