    Constantine, the young noble caesar, was only 9 years old when this nummus was struck in 325 - same year as the London mint was closed down.

    That's a nice coin. I also have a London Mint coin bearing his likeness.

    Great coins, all!
    I really want to add a London coin to my collection. I think that's what I am going to be on the look out for tomorrow at the Whitman show.

    Your top one is very nice, clear. I like his crest! The bottom radiate, draped one is marked as 'S' for scarce in Cloke and Toone reference.

    Here’s is Constantius I as Caesar AE Follis, that I believe is from the London mint. Please correct me if I’m wrong. DBF38144-CC1F-4525-A286-4FBC2AC30BD5.jpeg 6A46C2FA-E1CC-4052-9DE2-174CCBFD89F2.jpeg
