ROMAN EMPIRE CONSTANTINE I CHRISTIAN CROSS (TICINUM MINT) VERY FINE 307-337 AD. THE CHRISTIAN CROSS IS VERY RARE ON CONSTANTINE I COINS, IT IS ON THE REVERSE OF THIS COIN, IT IS TO THE LEFT OF THE WAIST OF SOL (WELL DEFINED CROSS), CONSTANTINE I COINS ARE NOT HARD TO FIND. HOWEVER, FINDING ONE WITH A CHRISTIAN CROSS IS VERY RARE AND THIS COIN'S CROSS IS VERY DISTINCTIVE (SEE REVESE OF COIN AT THE WAIST OF god SOL) IS A WHOLE OTHER THING.
I QUESTION WHETHER THE MINTERS OF CONSTANTINE I COINS EVEN WANTED TO BE KNOWN FOR DOING THEM, SINCE CONSTANTINE I WAS THE FIRST ROMAN EMPEROR TO ALLOW THE PRACTICE OF CATHOLISM AND SINCE THEY WERE NOT SURE WHETHER MINTING THESE COINS WOULD CONTINUE AFTER CONSTANTINE I. HOWEVER, THE COINS DID CONTINUE TO BE MINTED BY HIS SONS WHO BECAME RULERS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE AFTER HIS DEATH AND THOSE COINS ARE EASIER TO FIND WITH THE CHRISTIAN CROSS ON THEM. THIS COIN IS GRADED BY NGC AS VERY FINE AND CERTIFIED AS AUTHENTIC.
