A 'whopper' !
A veritable Chris Christie in bronze.

I have two of similar type. Neither of which anyway similar as far as good looks go.

It has great eye appeal
which is the most important quality an ancient coin can have.

Looks similar in size to a big Egyptian coin I have. Definitely satisfying to hold one of these. Doubt anybody had too many in their pocket walking around!
