Betcha in real life [i.e, not on e-barf] it sells for a whole lot less.  Collectors call it the Tribute Penny, but it could just as well been any of Tiberius' or Augustus'
denarii circulating at the time that included the title Caesar; the bible doesn't the
particular type used for illustration.  Just to keep all  this on 78's, imagine if you like  a 7-inch G&T of the Sermon on the Mount, recorded live!
