Through the years, I have come to learn about the power of vision and imagination. Roses may seem physically attractive but are they truly beautiful? When Adam and Eve beheld the forbidden fruit was it attractive or beautiful to them? It is true popular culture increasingly confuses the artificial for the real, pretty for beautiful and the untrue for the true. What image of you do you see in your "IMAGE-NATION"? (I doubt you've learnt about the origin of the word Imagination from anywhere else👀). Well that's my imagination running wild! Have you ever looked beyond the attractiveness of anything around you to appreciate the beauty that lies within? What mental picture of your future is stuck on your mind, giving you sweet dreams or sleepless nights? I urge you to fall in love with that which gives you peace, trigger smiles, expand your vision, gladden your heart, without throwing you out of Eden. Go right ahead and dive into your IMAGE-NATION. Think it, Be it, Just do it! #IMAGE-NATION #coinage #wordporn #Think #Imagine #Trance #yoga #stateofmind #beautiful #beauty #GodwinAkpan #Do #Disrupt #Dominate #Win

Unlike the practice of professional numismatists, I prefer to see the “big picture”. So, my entire Roman coin collection, all 250 pieces, from Julius Caesar to Valentinian III is laid out on a single pane of glass in a cabinet, in chronological order. In an instant, in almost a single glance, I can take in hundreds of years of Roman history, and dozens upon dozens of rulers. One characteristic of the Roman Imperial coinage is easily seen when viewed this way; the relentless debasement of the silver denarius, the workhorse currency of the Empire, a coin about the size of an American dime. Augustus (r. 27 BCE - 14 CE) minted a relatively pure denarius, with a silver content of about 95-98% (a fineness of .95-.98). The silver content of the denarius remained roughly constant through the reign of his great-grandson Nero (r. 54-68 CE, coin 1), and into the reign of Emperor Domitian (r. 81-96 CE), of the Flavian Dynasty, in the late first century CE (coin 2). By the time of Marcus Aurelius (r. 161-180 CE) and his son Commodus (r. 180-192 CE, coin 3), about a century later, the fineness of the denarius was about .8. During the reign of Septimius Severus (r. 193-211 CE), the fineness dropped to only .5. In other words, denarii that were supposed to be nearly 100% silver were now only about half that much. By then, coins contained about 50% tin or zinc, or any other white metal the mint had to hand. (Eventually, as the fineness dropped even further, the Imperial mint began to admix copper into the coins). Coins that are pure silver reflect ambient light differently than those with much lower fineness. It is easy to see. As you would expect, they also tarnish very easily, especially in the acidic air present in most contemporary large cities. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • (Article and photo by Cy A.

While I was born and raised in the good ole US of A, my mother’s parents grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This beauty was gifted to my mother from her parents, and she just had the opportunity to pass it down to me. A family that stacks together stays together!
