Constantine the Great

Assorted Reverse Types of Constantine
Adventvs - Gloria Exercitvs

      These pages feature some of the reverse types of Constantine. At one point, I wanted to collect one example of each type of bronze coin of Constantine. A few of his coins are exceedingly rare though and if they ever turn up sell for quite a lot of money. Some of the reverse types were not even issued by Constantine, but were issued by other rulers in the name of Constantine. Eventually, I became more interested in coins that Constantine issued and focused more on his coinage after his first civil war with Licinius (A.D. 317). I believe that this is when you can start to see some of Constantine showing up in his coinage.

"This coin obviously induced Voetter (NZ 1909, Atlas, Tafel 5) to regard this mark as the first of the Gloria exercitus series. The coin, however, does not illustrate any transition from the Providentiae coinage, where Constantine already earlier had been accorded the obv. legend with MAX AVG. As it is difficult to accept this coin of the Gloria 2-standard as depicting Constantine II as Augustus, it should be classified as an inexplicable irregularity."     RIC VII pg 558
