    LordM Giveaway #80 (eight drawings- all Roman coins)

    (Oops, I had the insert for the first coin slid into the flip backwards. Also note that only seven bronze coins are shown above. I later added an eighth silver one. See below.)

    Hello, everyone, and welcome to the latest giveaway.

    The prizes here will consist of seven eight Roman Imperial coins that I acquired as part of a lot from numismatist Björn Buschbeck of Freiburg, Germany (aka "Ursus" on NumisForums).

    I'll do random drawings, one at a time, in seven eight! rounds, using a random number generator like I did in Giveaway #78. See the bottom of this post for the round summary, to see what's in play.

    Update: I have decided to wrap up the contest with a silver Roman coin in Round 8.

    You are limited to one prize for yourself in this contest, but after you've won one, you may continue to enter once per round on someone else's behalf. Simply say who you're entering for, and they'll get the prize if your entry wins in the drawing.

    These are mostly bronze antoninianus coins from the Roman Empire, struck around the time of the Crisis of the Third Century. They are attributed and accompanied by Herr Buschbeck's handwritten flip inserts, though those are of course written in German.

    To enter: check the links in the summary below to hop to the latest round that's open.

    This contest is now open for entries.

    We begin with...

    ROUND 1.

    The prize is a Roman bronze antoninianus of the emperor Aurelian, struck between 272 and 274 AD. The obverse bears an armored bust of the emperor, wearing a radiate crown, while the reverse portrays Aurelian with Jupiter.

    Perhaps our ancient coin experts can chime in with further information about this coin.

    To enter this round, all you need to do is:

    1. Say that you want it, and
    2. A word or two about why you want it or what you like about it.

    If you do not want the coin for yourself, you may enter on someone else's behalf. Simply name the person you would like to have it if your entry wins the drawing.

    Then, sometime in the next 1-3 days, we'll do the drawing and move on to the next round. This round is open for entries until such time as I announce the drawing.

    You may follow the progress of the contest in the...

    I'm afraid the photo quality won't be as good in this contest as it was in the last one.

    Given that @BuffaloHunter said this was his first pick, and that he won two prizes for other people in Giveaway #78, I want it for him, too. So here’s an extra entry. :)

    As I indicated in the previous giveaway, I currently don't have an ancient coin. Actually, I have a COPY of one, but not a real one (another story). So the "Ancient for an ancient" project continues. Thanks to LordM for another generous contest.
