Here are some pictures. At first we were going to use the same coin for both the Sanctum 5 coin and the Roman Relic coin. Then we decided to use two different coins.
The main reason was after they are cast the detail degrades on the coins. I decided I liked the final look of the Roman Relic (2nd and 3rd pictures) after the casting and degrading of the image. These images are of the actual Roman Relic that is shipping now.

The picture directly below shows the first Sanctum 5 coin on the right (no countermarks on it, and now replaced by the coin on the left} and the real Antoninus Pius coin on the left.
Antoninus Pius ruled as Emperor and Marcus Aurelius was his successor.
Roman Relic is Marcus Aurelius
Sanctum 5 and S-5 Relic is Antoninus Pius

You can see the detail is much nicer on the A.P. coin. The cast coin is a bit degraded but still nicer detail than the Roman Relic coin.

So the S-5 and S-5 Relic is a nicer looking coin than the Roman Relic and are being cast from the Antonius Pius coin on the left. The final relief on the image is better.

Now remember, the coin on the left is a real coin and not the S-5. The S-5 is cast from that coin and will have nice detail but it will be aged even more than the real one, plus the photos wash out some of the aging.

The coin on the left is what the two Sanctum coins are cast from, the coin on the right is the Roman Relic (no countermarks and its a Marcus Aurelius)

Drool. honestly I like the copy better then the original, it gives it way more flavor and apparent age to the average sitter.
