Double Prutah of Felix?

Ancient Coins | user_9810

I have a coin from Antonius Felix, but it is larger and heavier than normal (17.46 mm; 3.87 gm). Is it just a larger planchet or is it a double prutah?

It looks like a hand-chipped coin to me. I hope it turns out to be ancient or something like that because you don't see that every day. Good luck!

Welcome to ANA World. We are here to help and learn from each other. That coin you show us, could be a rather historically tied to the movements of the Romans into Palestine. However it is my suggestion of an ancient Greco-Roman coin used in the Middle East and perhaps Southern Europe too. So, never give up on your search and path, hope will be with you, good luck.

Very cool! But I don't have any idea. Maybe someone here can help or a local coin dealer. ; )

I'm not familiar with these, so I won't speculate. Rather suggest a specialized book. The thrill of the research is often as enjoyable as the specimen it's self. Perhaps to take it along for you next coin show, a dealer in ancients would most likely have answers in a face to face manner.

I would take it to a dealer. They would know or know someone who would. Lots of luck!
