Here I come, Pawn Stars!!

Found this in the back of Eldest Son's closet. Sent a general email to all the kids. Whose is this?

The words say "Augustus, Son of the Divine".
Mounted Roman coins on Etsy are going for about $45.
Other range from pocket change to so expensive you have to ask.

If none of the kids claims it I will take it to a jeweler to remove it from its mounting. Helps to
have both sides when trying to id a coin.

Who knows? This may be our ticket to hob-nobbing with The Donald...
Looked old Augustus up - my goodness!
Augustus  63 BC – 14 AD) was the founder of the Roman Empire  and its first  Emperor, ruling from 27 BC until his death in 14 AD.
So this coin could be over 2000 years old??

Good luck! I'm sure the Gnomes are hoping you'll be generous when you're wealthy!

On the other hand, if it ends up a windfall, the Lab pup could have a hellva nice dog duplex out back.
