M = 1000, CM = 900, L = 50, IX = 9, totaling 1959.

However the Romans would not have read the number this way as they did not recognize place order (this was added by Monks in the middle ages that got tired of copying long Roman Numerals). The Romans would have read this as:

M = 1000, C = 100, M = 1000, L = 50, I = 1, X = 10, totaling 2161.
