I ordered this coin for my grandson, he loves anything Roman history and was thrilled. I didn’t receive the authentic certificate with it, I contacted the seller and asked if he could send one out to him. He responded right away and is sending it right out. I would recommend to everyone. Very good customer service and arrived early.
