Greek gold coin with crucifix?

Hi, my dad has this Greek gold coin dating for the 3rd century and he told me that Helena the mother of Constantin, the ruler of Byzantium, found the crucifix on which Jesus Christ was crucified. So Constantine took a piece of the crucifix and ordered coinsmiths to make a few coins with a very thin shaving of the crucifix inlaid in it. Does anyone know about this coin and how much is it worth?
oh an the backside of the coin has the picture of the crucifix on it

Answer:

This would not be Greek but Roman, and I would try numismatics (.org). A coin depicting Constantine V with obverse cross is listed at 1968.131.244. That might be a good starting place. Good luck. There are thousands of variations. Boko :)
