@westarek, fist welcome to CCF. Second, that looks like a Lion and Bull from Lydia (Ancient Greece). Can you please post the weight? Thx.

I can tell you all you need to know. It's fake as are all coins offered by this eBay scoundrel (pana_nis).

Sorry to say but I agree with KS, it is a modern fake.

It is a modern fake, as others have noted. Before you buy from eBay, check out whether the seller has been blacklisted here:
