Au début de son règne, Justinien continua la typologie de son prédécesseur avec le follis qui a été créé par Anastase en 498. Un follis vaut 40 noummia et 1 solidus, 7.200 noummia, soit 180 folles pour 1 solidus. Seule la seconde officine de ce type a été répertoriée pour l'atelier de Nicomédie qui semble beaucoup plus rare que Constantinople.
