    I like the video but everyone is going to be telling you they want to see stationary pictures of the front and back of all of the coins. Please do your best to take well lit and clear (non-blurry) photos.

    The coin you show at 3:59 is a Byzantine pentanummium, that is a big E for 5. That is the reverse. The obverse shows the bust of the emperor, probably Justinian I. Here is a coin I own that is pretty similar to yours.

    JUSTINIAN I, 527-565, Pentanummium, Theoupolis (Antioch)

    Obv: D N IVSTINIANVS P P AVG. DIademed, draped and cuirassed bust right. Rev: Large E with central cross; star to right. Sear 244. 16 mm 2.4 g

    Pretty cool hu? A 6th century coin!

    I think I saw a Roman city commemorative there at 4:35. Here is a thread in the ancients section that shows some, you can see a few like your in there.
