This appears to be ancient but of a suspicious nature. This "coin", were it to be an original type, would be a gold aureus, and extremely valuable. However, traditional aureus strikes are known to exist in off-metal strikes, such as this bronze. This specimen has a thick black patina that is hiding fine detail and has been chipped and worn off at the high spots. This type, listed in J.De Witte's book on the coins of the Gallic Empire [#35], shows Postumus and Hercules on the obverse and Felicitas and Victory on the reverse. B. Schulte lists this type as Numbers 108-110 (Plate 9). Listed here as just a Gallic Empire related item. This item was traded to Sondermann in Germany, he thought it probably was a imitation from several hundred year ago [Padua]. I'm seeking comment, below.
