CONSTANTNE I THE GREAT ROMAN EMPEROR COIN WITH CHRISTIAN CROSS ON THE ALTAR - NGC GRADED CHOICE VERY FINE CONDITION scratches noted on slab, which i did not much notice under 8 power monocular. See photo EXTREMELY RARE COIN. THESE COINS ARE KNOW AS BI-NUMMUS THE SILVER COINS WERE KNOWN AS DENARIUS.

SOME BI-NUMMUS COINS CONTAIN 4% SILVER. CONSTANTINE I COINS ARE NOT HARD TO FIND. HOWEVER, FINDING ONE WITH A CHRISTIAN CROSS IS VERY RARE AND THIS COIN'S CROSS IS VERY DISTINCTIVE (SEE REVESE OF COIN ON THE ALTAR AT THE BOTTOM CENTER OF THE COIN) IS A WHOLE OTHER THING. I QUESTION WHETHER THE MINTERS OF CONSTANTINE I COINS EVEN WANTED TO BE KNOWN FOR DOING THEM, SINCE CONSTANTINE I WAS THE FIRST ROMAN EMPEROR TO ALLOW THE PRACTICE OF CATHOLISM AND SINCE THEY WERE NOT SURE WHETHER MINTING THESE COINS WOULD CONTINUE AFTER CONSTANTINE I. HOWEVER, THE COINS DID CONTINUE TO BE MINTED BY HIS SONS WHO BECAME RULERS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE AFTER HIS DEATH AND THOSE COINS ARE EASIER TO FIND WITH THE CHRISTIAN CROSS ON THEM. CONSTANTINE I, HAS HIS PORTRAIT DEPICTED ON THE OBVERSE OF THE COIN, WITH HIS NAME ENCIRCLING HIS PORTRAIT. THE COIN WAS MINTED IN TICINUM NOW MODERN DAY PAVIA, ITALY. THIS COIN HAS BEEN AUTHENTICADED AND GRADED BY NUMISMATIC GUARANTY CORPORATION (ANCIENTS) IN CHOICE VERY FINE CONDITION. THIS IS A GREAT FIND AND WILL BE A CHERISHED ANCIENT RELIC!
