These are real silver antoninianus coins of Roman Emperor Gordian III (Marcus Antonius Gordianus), dating back between 238-244CE!

Rising to the rank of Roman Emperor at the age of 13, he ruled from 238 to 244CE. He held the distinction of being youngest emperor up to that point in Roman history.

Due to the absurdly young age for an emperor, the operation of the imperial government was surrendered to the aristocratic families, who controlled the affairs of Rome through the Senate.

Gordian married Furia Sabinia Tranquillina in the year 241, enabling her father (and chief of the Praetorian Guard) Timesitheus to take over as the de facto ruler of the Roman Empire.
