Romano-Gallic Empire, Marcus Cassianius Latinius Postumus, AD 260-269, Treveri Mint (Trier, Germany), 3rd emission, AD 261. AE Sestertius: 32 mm, 25.5 gm, 6 h. Obverse: Laurate, cuirassed, & draped bust facing right, IMP C POSTVMVS P F AVG. Reverse: Victory striding left while holding a wreath & palm branch in her other hand. A captive is seated on the ground, VICTORIA AVG. RIC V 170. Al Kowsky Collection. Postumus, AD 260-269 (struck AD 261), Treveri Mint. AE Double Sestertius: 30 mm, 16.11 gm, 12 h. The reverse is the same type as my sestertius. A radiate crown distinguishes this denomination. Oddly, the double sestertius almost always weighs less than the sestertius .

Reverse: Postumus seated on a curule chair, holding a role & extending a hand towards a small figure before him. It commemorates the "dutiful generosity" of Postumus, presumably exercised when he celebrated his quinquennalia. This unique coin was donated to the British Museum by Edward Wigan in 1864. It has the finest portrait executed on a Roman coin in the 3rd century. Why the coin was holed remains a mystery. Postumus, AD 260-269 (struck c. AD 269) Cologne Mint. AV Aureus: 20 mm, 5.79 gm, 7 h. Obverse: Jugate busts of Postumus & Hercules, POSTVMVS PIVS FELIX AVG. Reverse: Hercules fighting the Nemean lion, HERCVILI NEMAEO. Ex Nelson Bunker Hunt Collection. Gold aurie like these coins were often put into elaborate pendant mounts & given to high ranking officials. These three treasures were recently stolen from a Paris museum . This interesting gold plated phantasy of a Postumus aureus was made by the renown German forger Carl Wilhelm Becker, 1772-1830.
