In the ancient world, travel was hazardous and uncomfortable, even for the elite. Yet remarkably, the Roman emperor Hadrian spent half of his 21-year reign on the road, visiting almost every province of the vast empire. The mint celebrated these grand tours with extensive coinage in gold, silver and bronze, known to numismatists as the “Travel Series”. There are four distinct reverses in this series, but coins of each type are not known for all provinces in all metals. This is type “Province” – The name and personification of the province (Hispania).
