It could have been so poorly struck that the gold has been distorted to the extent that the PVA looks like EVA. Even then, the A looks more like an upside down V, which worries me more than a little.
Also there are some oddities in both the obverse and reverse (including the dotted ring and so forth), which makes me wonder.
What is the weight?
A sure fire way to get an expert opinion is to email Daniel Sedwick. He will likely be able to tell you what it is, when it was struck, and how rare it is in 1 minute flat.
Also the edge finally gives it off as a fake I think.
I am not sure what you paid for this coin, but investing in a small digital scale would be worthwhile. I googled digital scales and found thousands. My search engine puts sites with ads first, so make sure you check prices. Amazon has thousands, and the lowest are below $10 delivered.
Or you could go old school:
scale on Roman coin
