    As of this coming Saturday, I will have a daughter-in-law. Her name is Victoria. I'd like to celebrate by posting a coin depicting her namesake. Post your Victorias!

    There are rather fewer Victoria coins in the name of empresses so I will show this rare one (I know of four) from Julia Domna.

    Congrats, RC!

    The legend on this one reads LIBERTAS (which may be questionable choice for the occasion? :shame:), but it has a nice Victory-Victoria shaking her pom-poms to celebrate the occasion. :)

    @Roman Collector- congratulations for adding a Victoria to your family! They are nice to have. :)

    The most precious of my Victorias.



    2) An ancient Victoria/Victory, the only Eliasberg coin I have owned, and the onetime centerpiece of my Holey Gold Hat.

    Zeno (emperor of the East, A.D. 476-491). AV Solidus. Thessalonica, A.D. 476 or later.


    Pedigreed to the famous Louis E. Eliasberg Collection.

    3) Two more ancient Victorias (Victories) on a Lucius Verus sestertius and Trajan Decius antoninianus from my old 2007-08 Roman collection.



    4) A "modern" Victoria, presently the only one in my collection, but part of what was once a much larger 1901 British Empire type set I assembled for Victoria #1, above. Later sold that collection (minus the coin below), and bought this one coin for her, which I later sold to buy something else seen in that link.

    Great Britain: gold half-sovereign of Queen Victoria, 1901, from the Dr. Jacob Terner collection
    PCGS MS64; population 14 with 6 higher as of 5/20/2019.

    Here is a brass plaque that was found in the Roman fort of Isca Silurum (Caerleon, Wales) that depicts Victory carrying a trophy...


    And Victory with Trophy on a coin....
