Welcome to Tnet.

Unfortunately, your coin is actually a cast copy, not real. These copies are common and were likely originally sold as souvenirs and were never intended to deceive.

You're welcome. Don't give up, keep looking. And don't be afraid to make mistakes. As long as you don't spend too much, you can learn just as much from handling fakes as the real thing. One of the specialists at Sotheby's years ago told me if you're a collector and never make mistakes you're not trying hard enough.
