    HI All,

    New to the forum, can anyone help ID this coin, I think it is real but I cannot find anything resembling it online.
    Thanks in advance.

    Looks to be a 'Fantasy' coin to me. It is somewhat similar to a Sicilian type featuring Silenos riding an 'ass' on the reverse.

    Others may be more familiar with it.

    EDIT: Upon further research, the reverse also closely resembles the obverse of AR Tetradrachms from Macedon, Mende that feature Dionysos.

    Yep - definitely fake due to the poor style of the portrait on the obverse, for one thing...
