Description

Marcus Aurelius was descended from a wealthy Roman family. This family had for a long time occupied the offices of praetors and consuls.

Marcus Aurelius became engaged to Faustina, the daughter of the reigning emperor Antonius Pius in the year 138. Just one year later, Marcus was crowned as Caesar, he was thus the successor of the old emperor. The latter-mentioned had previously adopted him. A process in those days which was typical for the regulation of succession. Marcus and Faustina eventually married in the year 145. Their daughter, Lucilla, married Lucius Verus, who was co-emperor of Marcus Aurelius from 161 to 169.

Overall, the family had over 14 children. Their son Commodus was soon destined to succeed his father. With the death of Marcus Aurelius in the year 180, the era of the so-called adoptive emperors came to a conclusion. Each of these silver coins is authentic and more than 1,800 years old.. Besides featuring the portraits of Marcus Aurelius and Faustina Minor, the reverse sides of the coins vary. In those days, the reverse sides of the coins were used to honour important events or gods as well as to convey political messages to the people.
