Gold Coins of Aemilian

I don't expect to ever have a real gold coin of Aemilian.  They are among the rarest of Roman coins, so I have a nice counterfeit instead.

Unlisted IMP AEMILIANVS PIVS FEL AVG  Bust radiate, draped, cuirassed  r.      

A Becker counterfeit (made in 1831).  Made in white metal and using a radiate bust - so it shouldn't fool anyone.  Of course it might be more tricky as an antoninianus, but Becker calls this an Aureus.
