My parents were given these 2 coins from family, which apparently have been handed down for many many generations. My parents believe they are either Turkish or Bulgarian and they believe they are perhaps 1000 years old. Below are the pics (one from front view and other from back). Would appreciate some feedback to what they truly are, their vintage, and approximate value estimates. Thanks

@ddm, first welcome to CCF. Second, I'm going to move this thread over to the medieval and ancients section of CCF so that we can get the right eyeballs on it. In the meanwhile, it might be helpful for you to post the diameter and weight of both of these coins. Thx.

Hello and welcome.

They are not Turkish or Bulgarian (though they may originall yhave been dug up from there), they are ancient Roman, and older than 100 years.

The larger bronze coin is in the name of Roman general Agrippa, a friend and loyal subordinate of the first emperor, Augustus. The coins in his name were struck under emperor Caligula, circa AD 37-41.

The smaller silver one is a denarius, I believe in the name of Marcus Aurelius while he was Caesar (junior emperor) under Antonius Pius. The "TR POT VIII" in the reverse legend dates the coin to AD 153-154.
