Product Details

When the mighty Danube was the frontier of the Roman Empire, Carnuntum was the site of Septimius Severus’ declaration as Emperor in AD 193. This magnificent third silver 20 euro coin in the Rome on the Danube series does justice to that historic moment. Mintage of just 50,000 coins (ASW 0.5209 oz)!
Superbly struck in Proof quality with a maximum mintage of 50,000 pieces, each coin comes in a protective transparent acrylic capsule and a presentation box containing a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Then governor of Pannonia, Septimus Severus, was declared Emperor by his troops at Carnuntum – the administrative capital of the Roman province located in present-day Austria near the border with Slovakia and Hungary – and reigned until AD 211. His profile adorns the coin’s obverse in front of a reconstruction of the massive Heathen’s Gate, the ruins of which still stand outside the town today. The Villa Urbana, a palace that was once the home of Carnuntum’s wealthier inhabitants, features on the coin’s reverse. In the foreground stands a Roman legionary tending to his armour, beside him a guard with his lance and shield.

For those keen to complete the whole six-coin collection a superb wooden case is also available for purchase.
