Description:
Nero (AD 54-68) and Agrippina Jr. (Augusta, AD 54-58). AR denarius (17.5mm, 3.61 gm, 9h).  Lugdunum, AD 54-55. AGRIPP AVG DIVI CLAVD NERONIS CAES MATER, bare head of Nero right facing draped bust of Agrippina left / NERONI CLAVD D[IVI F CAES AVG] GERM IMP TR P around oak wreath enclosing EX S C. RIC 2 (R2). BMCRE 3. RSC 7. Rare! Attractive dark iridescent toning. Good Very Fine.

Agrippina's rapid loss of influence after successfully engineering Claudius' death and Nero's accession to the throne, culminating in her expulsion from the palace by Nero, is reflected in the gold and silver coinage of Nero's first regnal year. Agrippina is prominent in Nero's first coin type as emperor, shown by our denarius: her titles occupy the obverse, relegating Nero's titles to the reverse, and her portrait faces Nero's, though in the subordinate right-hand position. In the second type, the titles changed places, Nero's now occupying the obverse, and the portraits became jugate, with Agrippina behind Nero. Thereafter, Agrippina was entirely excluded from the coinage.
