...Seems i ain't bought a coin in forever...been wanting one of these column coins for years, but they were in short supply and the few that i saw not much better quality than this one were a $100 higher at least...and i'm gonna plug the seller, sava17_ua whose one of our democracy loving Peeps, who has a lot of coins at bargain prices and i recommend giving him a  lQQk.....get a good deal and do a good turn!   he sent me 2 free coins too with a thank you note to us here in America...Trajans column coin is about 3g, 19mm, and the Divus Pius is 2.65g, 17mm

  Post away Peeps 🙂

That's a memorable transaction! I went to Ukraine about 20 years ago, and that 50 kopek design is very familiar. The 10, 25 etc are the same design, with the tryzub, which has been on their coins for 1000 years.

(The other one looks Danish!)

I was actually watching that column denarius, but didn't buy cuz I already have one. But I did buy these couple of coins from the same seller on Christmas eve last year before all went downhill, only drawback was the 3 month shipping (which I definitely shouldn't be complaining about given the state of affairs).

Trajan's monumental and architectural coins are some of my favorites among Roman Imperials. The "Columna Traiani" also fits into my "Barbarians, Captives, and Enemies" Collection because the sculptural frieze scrolling all the way up details the Dacian conquest.

The amazing thing is that you can still see the column standing in Trajan's Forum in Rome today. Another monument depicted on coins once also stood in the Forum (now lost): The "Equus Traiani," or Equestrian Statue of Trajan.

And one of the Dacian captives depicted on the column itself:
