It's a denarius of the Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius as Augustus (138 -161 AD).


The obverse bears his bust and the legend `Antoninus Aug Pius P P' but I suspect that a part of the legend is perhaps missing off flan


The reverse shows Vesta standing to the left, holding simpulum and palladium (according to my 1988 edition of Roman Coins and their values).


No point in giving you `values' from my book. Best that you do a search on either ebay or wildwinds.com to see what current market values are for that grade.


The coin appears to be BMC 806 or similar.

You can search that site for antoninus and denarius and get a feel for prices as well.
