Lots of coinage over the centuries of Rome's imperial and republic rule were "watered down" so to speak... The antoninianus (actual name lost to history) is a prime example of how it started out as a good proportion of silver (~50%) then over time reduced in content to about 5% then went to bronze. Some of the coins metal content were not worth the face value. The public knew this so therefore saved these coins to pay their taxes back to the government. Inflationof the treasury was nothing new either, some emperors minted so many coins with no regard for how this would impact supply and demand. Some minted coins on the go while at war to pay their armies too with no regard of how this would affect the value of said currency.
