Constantine the Great and his sons issued a few different types of commemorative coins from 330-346. These were issued to mark the move of the Empire's capital from Rome to Constantinople (formerly Byzantium, but renamed after Constantine in 330 AD) and to re-affirm Rome as the traditional centre of the Empire. Thirteen mints produced these commemorative coins: Alexandria, Antioch, Arelate (Arles), Aquileia, Constantinople, Cyzicus, Heraclea, Lugdunum (Lyons), Nicomedia, Rome, Siscia, Thessalonica, Trier.
