The link below appears to be the RPC listing for your coin but unfortunately it seems a reference number has yet to be assigned. One must be very careful parroting numbers from second-hand sources. The BMC catalogues are available online and can be downloaded for free at sites like books.google.com or archive.org. You will need to check your coin against the actual listing, especially the bust type which on your coin is laureate, draped and cuirassed, seen from behind (note that the right shoulder peeks out from beneath the drapery below the chin, unlike the Wildwinds coin). I haven't looked but I'll wager that "from behind" is how the BMC coin is listed, in which caae yours would not be a variant.
