I'll start with my Caracalla and Geta brother coins from my collection. Before the fight for the throne they must have been pretty good bros or were they?






Feel free to post any young or child emperor coins you have!

Great coins, Justinokay. Years ago I had a decent antoninianus of Gordian III that would have fit the theme but, alas, I have nothing to contribute now. But I look forward to seeing what others add.

@Marti, that is indeed an unusually young portrait for Herennius Etruscus, especially considering that he was in his mid-20s when he first appeared on coinage as Caesar. It does however look like his younger brother Hostilian... I wonder if the Mint employees used the wrong portrait?

Still working on migrating all of my photos out of photobucket jail, but I have this one to share:





The Beata type was minted 321-323 (during a peace between Constantine and Licinius), so here Constantine Jr. would have been between 4-6 years old.

Not sure if this thread is supposed to be about child emperors or any emperors who were not above age 21.

Here is a group of child emperors who were not more than teenagers at the time of their elevation to office.


Caracalla (this coin first issued when he was 11)



Geta (this coin first issued when he was about 10)



Diadumenian (son of Macrinus; this coin issued when he was about 9)



Maximus (son of Maximinus Thrax; estimated age 13 at elevation to Caesar)



Philip II (elevated to Ceasar at age 7; this coin issued before age 10)



Herennius Etruscus (first son of Trajan Decius; made Caesar with his father's accession, and Augustus a year later; this coin as Caesar (early to mid-teenage)



Hostilian (younger son of Trajan Decius; first made Caesar with brother; elevated to Augustus after death of father; this coin issued in Rome as Caesar when he was probably below age 10)

Wow that is a super group, Irbguy! I am especially loving the Diadumenian and Maximus... they must have cost a pretty penny! Hostilian isn't easy to find in Imperial silver either!

It is unusual isn't it.

Nice coins Irbguy., like the Geta one. Got confused with echizento and marti coins but all are great coins( have to get use to the new profile coin of echizento, too used to the denarius one).

I feel like Geta has a more joyful portrait on most coins compared to Caracalla
