This silver antoninianus featuring Sol was issued during the reign of Gordian III between 238-244 A.D. Gordian's profile is on reverse, the image is inverted to the front. The coin is set in a sterling silver frame. Sol is holding the earth in his hand. Interestingly the festival of Sol, known at the Birthday of the Sun, was held on December 25th.
