R P (the letters R and P under a tilde, one globule in the middle, one globule under the letter R and three globules in a triangle to the left of the letter R, two globules aligned vertically to the right of the letter P).

R (the letter R between two crosses, three globules above the right cross, one globule below the letter R).

Strongly resembles the coin illustrated in ancient works. Some dots which are (in my opinion) not globules, present on the obverse (to the right of the globule under the letter R and to the right of the right cross).

It seems that a coin of this type went on sale before the 2000s in a SUP state for a price around 12.000 francs.
