The style of engraving is not typical of Roman coinage or anyone else's coins. Here's a link showing a Roman coin from the 70's-80's AD, and you
can see how sophisticated the minting technique was. Coins of this quality were minted as far back as Alexander the Great (300 BC.) news.bbc.co.uk...
While it's somewhat similar to the Early Medieval coinage shown
here, note that the lettering and so forth is much more
detailed and much more three-dimensional.
NOW... it's been years since I was into numismatics. I suggest you take it to a local coin dealer!
I wonder if you could take it to the history professor at the local University? Every time I find some kind of antiquity, I never know where to take
it to get it appraised. Unless it's from the 19th century or later, I have no Idea what to do with it.
