This coin was issued under the authority of her father Antoninus Pius. It was struck in Rome, AD 154-56.  S-4704. Though well circulated, this is a well centered pleasing coin.

Obverse: FAVSTINA AVG PII AVG FIL. Faustina’s draped bust, right.

Reverse: CONCORDIA.  Concordia Seated left holding flower and resting on cornucopia.
