After a distinguished military career, he was proclaimed august Sirmium after the death of Claudius II and remained sole emperor after the suicide of Quintillus. He took the painful decision to abandon Dacia in 271 and then attacked Zenobia Vaballath by seizing Palmyra in 272. Then he began the reconquest of Gaul Empire and conquered Tetricus Chalons. He triumphs in Rome and gives life to save his prisoners brand. He was assassinated when he was preparing a campaign against the Sassanids to reconquer Mesopotamia. With the reform, Aurélien tried to recreate a real coherent monetary system had completely disappeared from the reign of Gallienus.

Apparently the penny, sometimes silver, worth half of the new currency called aurelianus or antoninianus.
