The Roman Emperor Hadrian is perhaps best known for having built the wall that formed the northern border of his empire in Britania. Although he faced objections from his senate, who wished for him to expand his empire, he was a wise and thoughtful ruler, who recognised the importance of understanding his people. During his reign he travelled to each distinct province of his empire, and met with the people there, fostering understanding. His coin represents strength through clever decision-making, and power that is held through wisdom rather than might. The verso of the coin is inscribed with the words: for my lover, pour mon amoureux.
