Due to its proximity to the Italian border, Aguntum was one of the earliest Roman settlements in Austria. A thriving centre of commerce and trade founded around 30 BC, Aguntum flourished during the reign of Emperor Constantius II, who features on this elegant fourth addition to our Rome on the Danube series.

Constantius II’s profile dominates the obverse of the coin, which was designed by engraver Herbert Wähner. Cleverly highlighted against the Dolomites in the background are the remains of a gate located in the artisan quarter of Aguntum, a civilian settlement primarily concerned with trade and commerce situated near present day Lienz in the East Tyrol. Designed by Helmut Andexlinger, the reverse depicts a market scene in Aguntum. In the foreground a vendor offers some earthen vessels to a woman for purchase, while two passersby stroll past in the background, which also details part of the forum.

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