Trajan was born in Spain, close to the modern day city of
Seville, and became the first Roman emperor born outside
of Italy. Remembered as a successful solder-emperor who
presided over the greatest military expansion of the
empire, he extended Roman territory to its greatest
maximum size by the time of his death. Trajan was known
for his philanthropic rule, overseeing extensive public
building programs and implementing social welfare
policies. These works ensured his enduring reputation as
the second of what would become known as the Five Good
Emperors of Rome, who presided over an era of peace and
prosperity in the Mediterranean world. Several of his
construction projects survive in modern times, most
notably Trajan's Column, which stands in the marketplace
also constructed by and named for him.
Coins are procured from legitimate antiquities
dealers. They are dated through the Emperors'
portraits and have been polished slightly to enhance
their beauty. They are of no critical value to
museums and were exported from country of discovery
legally, and with any necessary permits.
