OP, these were "do it yourself" slabs by a company out of St Paul. They sold a lot of them on Ebay over the years. The coin does not look bad, and I am sure its real. Actually @galba68 just posted a thread of a similar coin he just found metal detecting in I am assuming the UK. The obverse will be the emperor, and the reverse is devoted to the "Genius" of the emperors. Its a funny thing, they are not saying the emperor was a genius, more the people are wise for having them kind of.
Your coin is a IOVI CONSERVATORI reverse that was minted in Cyzicus (SMK) in the first officina (A).
The image is of Jupiter standing left, chlamys across shoulder, leaning on sceptre and holding Victory on globe in right hand; eagle with wreath to left on ground.
Thanks for correcting me. I thought it was one of the Genius types.

z at the end.
I seen it on another coin site I forgot which one but it was graded and it had a z on it
I would say 20 bucks if you found someone that wanted it.
