This Ancient Roman silver coin has been set in a modern 18 karat gold pin.

Born of an illustrious family with royal connections, Annia Galeria Faustina Senior was the daughter of M. Annius Verus and Rupilia Faustina, aunt of Emperor Marcus Aurelius. She married Antoninus Pius before he became Emperor and bore him two sons and two daughters, one of whom, the younger Faustina became the wife of Marcus. After Antoninus' accession Faustina Senior became Augusta and helped her husband in a reign that is considered to be a golden age. She was deified on her death in 140 A.D. On this fine coin she is facing right, wearing her hair in a tight bun, the fashion of the time, and appears as a woman of great dignity and honor.
