....TRP IIII for this Emperor are not just rare but very rare!....Minted in Rome before April 238...I do have this note, but I can't remember from where?..
TRP IIII only 1 example among 1855 denarii of Maximinus in hoards listed in BMC, page 88.
As to price I have no idea but probably a lot
Thanks for sharing..

Is a TRP IIII denarius for this emperor even cataloged?

In my opinion a pitiful fake combining an obverse of Maximinus with a reverse of another reign.

No, you are mistaken

Info from augustuscoins.com
Here is another example from year 4, his final year:

TRP IIIIPM TRP IIII COS PP (year 4)
Struck 238 before April [BMC]
BMC 219
Sear 8314 (no photo)
22-19 mm. 2.25 grams.

This issue is very small. Maximinus lost control of the Rome mint when the Gordians were proclaimed emperors at Rome in the beginning of April, 238. BMC suggests the mint had been preparing even before that by not issuing many coins in the name of Maximinus in 238

Yes. The reference is apparenty "RIC IV Maximinus Thrax 6". There are two of these in the ANS collection, which don't appear to be die matches to each other, at least for the reverses: http://numismatics.org/search/resul...Thrax%206%22

Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis

Yes we also know of Sestertius TRPIIII RIC #40 So for sure he was still minting coins in early 238...

As to the authenticity of the op coin I give no opinion via photos.

I don't collect these, but the "patina" reminds me of just about every Chinese fake coin I've seen.

But still hoping for Wee that it's genuine.

It's genuine for sure.
Founded in a field in the region in Eastern Europe which is rich on denarius:)
But the question is about the price)
Thanks everyone for answers!

Wee, not meaning to sound too harsh here, but your case for authenticating provenance is pretty weak. Who precisely found it and under what circumstances? Otherwise it's just a story that many fakes come with.

An Eastern Europe origin also sets alarms off, as the region, particularly Bulgaria, has become a hotbed for counterfeiting Roman coinage.

Here's what probably ought to be done with such a potentially rare piece - have its composition analyzed via x-ray fluorescence (XRF). Unless a forger was really clever and utilized a silver flan made up from a genuine Roman denarius of the correct period, the purity and presence or lack of certain trace elements ought to settle the issue definitively.

It was founded last in summer 2021 in Ukraine by one of my friends with MD Deus light. Among other finding there were some Scythian items.
Ok, thanks everyone again, I'll try to find the answer on some European forums.
