This ancient Roman Empire coin is a silver Denarius from the reign of Lucilla, AD 164-182/3, known for its historical and artistic value. Certified by NGC Ancients in Extremely Fine (XF) condition, this coin is part of the prestigious SPQR collection, offering a glimpse into the time of the Antonine Dynasty.

The obverse of the coin features a draped bust of Lucilla facing right, with the inscription "LVCILLA AVGVSTA" encircling her image. This depiction highlights her status as the daughter of Emperor Marcus Aurelius and the wife of co-emperor Lucius Verus.

On the reverse, the coin displays Venus Victrix, symbolizing victory and success. Venus is standing to the left, holding a small Victory in her outstretched right hand, while her left hand rests on a shield set on a helmet. The surrounding inscription "VENVS VICTRIX" emphasizes the goddess's role in Roman mythology as both a symbol of beauty and a bringer of triumph. This imagery encapsulates the Roman Empire's ideals of conquest and divine favor.
