It is a fantasy piece and they all appear to be cast as can be seen from the two examples (same shape and wear).

Not something that I know anything about but it looks very much like this:-

In the description it says:

Paduans and Copies
Fantasy Æ Cast Paduan Medallion.

Does that mean the one being auctioned is a copy and not authentic?

That is a very nice and historical coin. I also like how you list "formerly in NGC encapsulation #xxxxxxx." I need to add that to mine that have been removed from their cases. I do keep the tags from those.

It appears to be a denarius of Tiberius; minted in Lugdunum (modern day Lyons), c. AD 18-35

Obv: TI CAESAR DIVI AVG F AUGUSTUS; laureate head of Tiberius to the right.
Rev: PONTIF MAXIM; Livia seated to the right on a throne with ornate legs, her feet resting on a footstool, holding a sceptre with her right hand and an olive branch in her left

Identification Help / Can anybody identify this huge coin?

My great uncle has an import/export business in the late 1940s and one customer, who was an Italian soldier, didnt have enough money to pay for the transport of his belongings to Mexico.  So he paid with a box that contained a bunch of Nazi memorabilia and this coin.

I found the box as we cleared his house which is being demolished.

Anybody know what it is?

Can anyone help ID this coin?  I dug it up in a wood in the south of England as a child about 45 years ago. It is a silver colour and approx. 15mm diameter.  I'd appreciate any info on this coin.
Many thanks
