Hi,
I have this coin and I know nothing about it. I would really appreciate someone with the knowledge in these coins to help me out by letting me know about it. I've searched for a long time and I just can't find a coin like it.
Looking forward to a response the images are below

Looks like a Diocletian abdication piece. Try looking for it on Wildwinds.

Indeed, a Diocletian abdication follis. Very interesting story, worth a read. Here's a sharper example from the web:

13155: to the CCF !

I have visited the archeological site of Diocletian's Palace in the town of Split, Croatia. Covers a roughly square area, 200 metres x 200 metres. Lots of vaulted basements etc., quite well preserved, about as well as Pompeii.

The coin brings things ancient into a focus of closer appreciation.
That is important for Americans (and myself - Australian), and is one of many reasons why I have had an interest in ancient coins for many decades.

Thanks for the picture.

Hi all
I have done a bit more research on this coin thanks to your help. I really have only found one other that looks similar. I was wondering if anyone can help me in valuing the coin for me of course I do understand that you would have to see it to give it an exact figure but I guess I want to know what the average would be because I have found them ranging from $20 to $4000 and I have also spoken to someone who sells coins and he told me a lot more I'm really confused as to why there are so many of the same coin with different designs and materials.
Hope to hear soon.

The value of the coin depends on its condition, rarity and demand. Visiting Vcoins.com I see examples of the coin in much better condition offered between $200-300 USD.

But the condition of your coin is lower, so I would expect it to retail $100-150 USD. If you sold the coin to an ancients dealer expect about half the retail price.

I'm not sure who you spoke to but the pricing of coins depends on specific issues, in your case the Diocletian abdication follis with the same reverse. I'm not a specialist on these, but I'd be surprised if any specific Diocletian abdication follis with that specific reverse and mintmark sold for $4,000. Those in mint condition might push $1000 but not this coin in this condition as shown in your pictures.

The price of ancient coins varies from almost worthless to hundreds of thousands of dollars - and more. On Monday a gold coin from the Roman Severan dynasty in excellent condition sold for $84,000. It all depends on the specific coin, its condition, and the demand for ir.

In this case, I don't think $100 is reasonable; Diocletian abdication folles are sought after, but they aren't that rare and good examples can be had on eBay for a lot less (and it was only 160 for an absolutely mint state one recently). The wear is quite attractive though, so I'd expect $50 is more reasonable.
