    I doubt it's a coin; more like a token.

    Maybe from a circus or magic show or it may be foreign.

    is that an ID or a guess by the 'coinnetwork' contributor?
    Reads more like a guess to me than a positive ID.

    that's really close.

    Maybe someone threw it in the river for good luck.
