100 francs [Object ID: 75854] 250 francs [Object ID: 75858] Lucius Septimius Severus Pertinax was born at Leptis Magna (in present-day Libya) in the Roman province of Africa.
According to the conversion rate, these coins were equivalent to 1/9 of the Prussian thaler and were thus exactly halfway between the two denominations of the minted currency (ie money in full circulation which takes its value from the precious metal it contains).Septimius Severus founded a dynasty of five emperors who ruled ‒ with a one-year interruption from April 217 to June 218 ‒ from 193 to 235, the year in which Severus Alexander, the last member of the dynasty, was assassinated at Mogontiacum (modern-day Mainz, Germany).The images and inscription on this aureus, which happens to be the only coin to show all four members of the imperial family, affirm the continuity of the empire and the Severan dynasty.The third layer was inscribed and inserted as a security feature between the obverse and reverse sides of the banknote, which were printed separately.When held against the light, this produces a security effect comparable to a watermark.There may have been plans to issue a matching 1/9 thaler coin for the western parts of the Kingdom which used the Mariengroschen so that a coin which was valid for the whole of Prussia would also be available for these western regions in the future.
The 1/9 taler from the Aurich mint depicted here is one of three known specimens and the only Prussian coin with the denomination 1/9 taler.
This proved to be a vain hope, as Caracalla ‒ the elder son of Septimius Severus ‒ killed his own brother Geta in the arms of their mother.
[Object ID: 69654] Quintus Labienus belonged to the immediate circle of Brutus, one of the assassins of Julius Caesar.
The coins were intended as payment for the Roman soldiers who had defected to Labienus and the Parthians.
In 39 BC, Labienus was defeated in the Taurus mountains in a Roman counterattack under the legate sent by Mark Antony, Publius Ventidius Bassus.
The Kingdom of Westphalia existed from 1807 to 1813 and was ruled by Jerome Bonaparte, Napoleon Bonaparte's brother.
