Hi there,
I came into some gold coins from a family member and I have no idea what they are, where they come from, etc. I will only be doing one coin at a time as per the rules, but do have 4 in total I need help identifying.

Someone was already able to identify the first two coins within the day - so I am hoping for some more help from you lovely people

I've tried to do some research myself - but i find some of the designs are so similar - so i end up searching for hours and getting nowhere or second guessing myself constantly!
My goal is simply to understand what is the name/type of each coin I own - era, are they greek or roman or byzantine etc

Was hoping someone here who sees coins constantly could make some sense of it.

Here are the details I know of this particular coin:

Coin Weight: 3.0g
Coin Size: ~17mm
Gold Content: Pass 18k acid test no problem

I have attached pictures (please ignore the color change, my original picture was blurry so had to retake it with diff lighting!)
Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide that will help!

Thank you so much in advance
