Good evening,

I did not have any London mint coins in my small-but-growing collection of ancients, so this Constantine I is the first. It's a bit rough but all of the details are present.

I can't find an exact match (it appears similar to, but not exactly, RIC VII 267) but here is the coin. The obverse legend break is different. If someone can narrow it down a bit more that would be lovely.

Weight is 2.66 grams, diameter approx 20mm.

Obv: Laureate and cuirassed bust right with eagle-tipped scepter

CONSTA / NTINVS AVG (note the odd legend break)

Rev: Altar with a globe on top and VOT / IS / XX on three lines, mintmark PLON in exergue, three stars above

BEAT TRA / *** / NQLITAS

I'll be looking to add a couple of more London issues maybe in nicer shape in the future but this is a good starting point.

Yup, that appears to be a much nicer example of my coin, Bob. (Mine was probably a lot cheaper, though!)

I agree that this is a nice starting point. Well done!
