and a set of bad emperors:
I think it gotta have Honorius!
@JayAg47.......Nice looking set!.....I completed mine not long ago and know the feeling. Especially like the Nerva!..Congrats....
I'm still on the hunt for Lucius Verus and finding him as difficult to acquire as Nerva!
An interesting extension to the set I'm working on at the moment are the 'chicas' to compliment them.....Still need a Crispina but do have a Lucilla...
Here's my set as of now.....
Here's my set, put together a little while ago. I updated my coin of Verus this year. I have none of the women of this era.
@JayAg47 . I especially like your Nerva!
I just recently completed my first phase of this sub-Collection.
Nerva-Antonines: A Huge Milestone for my Collection
The only Nerva I have in my collection is a quadrans, modius on obverse, winged caduceus on the reverse (or the other way around?!)
For Commodus, for the moment I will settle with my Antich provincial.
@JayAg47. I cannot get there in all silver - but here's a mixed set with a bonus Aelius:

That one is interesting!
Acquired it from SteveX6. I enjoyed his wonderful Animal Coin theme, and got one. Seems there are not too many Rhinos out there, most are walking right, to mine errantly walking left. That would be Sinister to those superstitious Romans.
