I assume both of yours are genuine.....but I can't be sure and I'll leave that up to those better able to clarify that for you. Obviously, they are often replicated.
They are described as struck by the military mint traveling with Caesar, circa 49 BC.
The reverse displays implements of the 'High Priest--Pontifex Maximus, a 'title' which Caesar held...and the elephant has been described as depicting 'good' (Caesar) trampling 'evil' (the snake) and to represent his victories over his Gallic enemies...
