Coining it in

The In My Pocket challenge for this week is to use coins.

I wanted to achieve 2 things with this pocket - marble colours, and the idea of a gift coin booklet. These often use replicas of medieval or Roman coins, with a little bit of history. I tried to find an image of this coin on the internet so that I could document it, without success, so I used Roman text instead. I coated the coin with Glossy Accents, but it's hard to see that here.
