Ancient Greece Decadrachm with Fast Quadriga

While stationed in Italy, I found these coins on a beach in Sicily. Can anyone please verify if this looks real? What is it worth?

    The patterns on your specimen look soft and mushy, not crisp, so it is probably a replica. Your coin is not simply worn, but it was made with mushy patterns, probably using a casting process. A genuine coin is struck between two pieces of hard metal. See our page (above) for a picture of a genuine coin.
