Hadrian Coin Pack - Denarius
Quantity:  1.80

Hadrian became Emperor in 117AD and due to his policy of peace through strength, his reign was marked by a general lack of major military activity. The Emperor travelled extensively and spent more than half of his reign, until his death in 138AD, outside Italy.

Hadrian is best known for the 73.5 mile long stone and turf fortification across northern Britain, which began during his reign in 122AD. Hadrian's Wall was 3 metres wide and 5 metres high and extended from the River Tyne to the River Solway. It was built to prevent military raids by the Pictish tribes to the north and to improve economic stability in the Roman province of Britannia, to the south.

This reproduction denarius coin is made from lead-free pewter and refers to Hadrian's travels by sea on one of his tours of the empire, which began in 128AD and lasted three years. The coin shows a bust of Hadrian on one side and a galley with rowers and oars on the other. Hadrian is seen seated to the right, above the rowers.

The coin is held in a clear plastic blister and is supplied in full colour pamphlet style packaging, complete with images and historical information of both the coin and life of Hadrian.
