Thank you Joe,

a special coin but not so much used as coinage, it was more given as a gift, must read into the details

Hi Eric,
very nice medallion! I have not yet been able to acquire a Pius example, but who knows..
Funny that Salussnake hangs from a tree; do we have snakes that live in trees in Europe? Wonder where the idea came from.
Congrats friend!

<<@ Pete i do not know, is this bi-metallic same as Orichalcum?>>

As I recollect, the inner part is bronze and the outer surrounding rim is Orichalcum...or the other way around.
Perhaps one of our experts can chime-in.

From the web:
"Bi-metallic coin - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bi-metallic_coin
Bi-metallic coins have been issued for a long time, with known examples dating from the 17th century, while the Roman Empire issued special-occasion, large medallions with a center of bronze or copper and an outer ring of orichalcum, starting with the reign of Hadrian.

Both options exists as far as I remember.
This one doesn't seems bimetallic from the photo, but the patina could be deceiving (it doesn't seems completely natural to be honest).

From what I see the innerpart is orichalkum and the outer rim is red copper.
