2011 Palau Roman Empire Diocletian 0.5g .9999 Fine Gold Legal Tender Coin
An Aureus from Gaius Valerius Diocletianus. After he had worked his way up to Commander-in-chief in the Imperial guard he has proclaimed Emperor in 284. Due to the many crises in the 3rd century, Diocletian felt compelled to reinforce the Empire’s domestic policy as well as foreign policy. In order to influence his power in the whole Empire better, he divided it into administrative districts with its own sub-emperors. This organization collapsed after his resignation in 305. Still, during his reign, Diocletian let be constructed the Baths of Diocletian in Rome and the Diocletian’s Palace in the historic district of Split. From the numerous Roman Emperors, he was the only one who voluntarily parted from the claim to power.
