    That Celtic coin is fascinating, I really hope someone can ID it. Might just be the lighting but it looks like it could be electrum/gold alloy. The Roman piece is a Constantine The Great campgate coin, and he ruled from AD 306-337. Hopefully someone can narrow down when during his reign it was minted. Nice finds!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    The celtic??

    The Roman is an AE Folles AD324-327 of CONSTANTINE I (the Great)
    Obv: CONSTAN-TINVS AVG Laureate head right

    Rev: PROV[IDEN-T]IAE AVGG Camp gate, 2 turrets, no doors, star above and layers of stone.

    In exergue: Mintmark[?]SIS[?] which is SISCIA
    and most likely a Roman Imperial Coinage (RIC) Vol VII SS 200 page 449 coin

    On the Celtic, I'll guess Danube Tribe/Region based on the horse's feet in this example:

    In addition to bumping this up - I wanted to say I liked Plumbata's post about the Celtic being made of electrum ,
    does it have a slight golden tint ?

    I believe the coin to be a very crude strike, or Imitation of Philip II, or 111 of Macedon, are you from Eastern Europe.
