@paw, it looks like you might have posted pics of the same side twice. Please either post a pic of the other side or else clarify that the pattern is the same on both sides. Also, it would be helpful to know the diameter and weight of this piece. Thx.

The pictures are terrible, but it doesn't look like gold to me. Ask for better pictures, a picture of the edge, and the diameter.

@paw, thx for clarifying. In the first pic, the design vaguely looks like a stylized horse head facing right. In the second pic, I'm not sure if that central design element is a two-barred cross, anchor, or even a monogram.

Unfortunately nothing in numista is jumping out at me. There are many Carthaginian Staters with a horse head on them, but those are all much more finely engraved and realistic. The Celts displayed more stylized horses on some of their gold coins, but it seems generally included the whole horse. I'm kinda stumped on this one.

Was it described as gold in the auction? It's strange to sell a gold coin without attribution.
