The city of Philippensium struck only a small issue of coinage consisting only of Divus types. Amandry records only 22 coins struck in the names of Divus Augustus, Divus Trajan and Divus Marcus Aurelius. Only three obverse dies are recorded, one for each ruler, and reverse die links show that these coins were all struck at the same time.

In addition, winning bids of EEC clients for this coin are subject to a 5% fee on hammer price as a reimbursement for import duty paid to HMRC.
