Oh its one of those elephant ones. Fisher1266x had one of those a few months ago. Very nice find ::g

Edit: here is the one Paul found. Adding a link here cause there’s some great information on why these were minted and why the elephant was so symbolic that’s really worth a read viewtopic.php?f=121&t=101519&p=901999&h ... nt#p901999

And quite a valuable coin Were supposedly struck by a travelling mint that went with the Roman Army while they were finishing off the conquest of Gaul.
