Description: Limes denarii were struck by official mints in bronze or billon generally on the northern frontier where silver was scarce. Many times they are mules with mismatched obverse and reverse dies. They were still valuated as a denarius. Many times the weak strikes are attributed to the use of old dies sent to the frontier to be used once they were too worn for Imperial use. An interesting part of Roman history
