The first coin here is a nice chunky Kingdom of Numidia Juba I unit 60-46 BC. Juba is a really interesting guy as the last ruler of Numidia so I’m excited after hunting for a while to find a nice coin of his to add to my collection. The other coin here is also interesting but very different. This is a Constantinople City Dedication half-centenionalis struck in Constantinople in 330 AD. I rarely purchase 4th century Roman bronzes but for a commemorative struck in Constantinople the year of the renaming of the city (at a time when great transformations were occurring as Constantine built his new capital) I knew I could make a exception. I know there are much more common and inexpensive commemoratives in this series but the deep connections of this one to this moment in history and scarcity gave it a different level of appeal. Anyway, just a little taste of my collecting journey, feel free to post any relevant coins below!!
