    They could have smoothed off the casting seam. There is really no doubt about its non-authenticity if its only 12K gold. The only thing left to ID is for what purpose it was made. If its gold plated. it would be a tourist trinket. If its solid 12k-14K it may be a modern jewelry piece.

    Not a coin, not counterfeit, most likely fantasy. But you could post in the Spanish cob section if you like. I have a feeling your friend doesnt generally give away gold and knows more than he said.. I dont know if its a game piece but more likely a souvenir or part of jewelry from a tourist destination.

    Another real possibility is a fantasy coin from the SCA or a Middle Ages Renaissance Group. They actually mint silver and gold fantasy coins to be used at reenactments. If its gold, this seems most likely.

    Im not sure how to test but drilling a hole is not necessary. Any pawn shop can test.

    The search feature here at the new Treasurenet is horrible but I managed to find the old TN thread on Google. Ask your friend if any member of his family participated in Renaissance Fair or Middle Age re-enactments. Strange silver coin?

    They actually mint their own gold coinage by taking features from a real coin but adding unusual lettering. As Mack said earlier, the lettering is pure fantasy.

    I didnt find a match and Im not really looking but these groups actually mint their own gold and silver coinage. If you find one in the USA, your heart will skip a beat. http://www.gmmnut.com/gmm/sca/sca.html

    I never heard of those Middle Ages re-enactments either until Moe and I IDed the silver coin from the "Kingdom of Caid" lol. Further research revealed that they actually mint gold and silver token coins to use as legal tender at the Fairs. To me its unbelievable! Im not saying this is what you have but its possible.

    We will see what the Spanish Cob forum says or the Brits. I would take it to a pawn shop to be sure.

    Honorable Mentions (1)
    remember this * reales were made of silver * --it took 2 - 8 reale coins - 16 reales to equal a 1 escaudo (gold coin) --the offical spanish govt rate was 16 silver reales = 1 escaudo of gold --

    there are no 4 reale "gold" coins - if its a 4 reale coin --either its a "real" silver 4 reale thats been "gold plated" -- or its a 12k gold plated base metal core replica or solid 12 k replica jewelry piece -- 12 k gold was often commonly used during the victorian age --civil war to 1900 era by the way --after 1900 --10 k became more the common mans jewelry with 14 k and 18 k used by folks with a bit more cash to spend
