    Greek. Possibly Antiochus IV (fake).

    Dang
    I knew I'd seen that before.
    And now that BigCypress said it... I can't NOT see the face.
    Thanks for blowing the cobwebs off my addled brain.

    Thanks to all for the info. I also can’t believe I didn’t see the face at first. Sounds to me like I have an interesting and worthless coin. I appreciate the help with the ID!

    Die cast fantasy piece, same on both sides, makes me think it was a token from a board game. It cant be a coin without a denomination. And its too poor a casting for a fake or replica. Its some kind of child's fantasy piece is my guess. It may be vintage. It was probably very shiny when new.

    Does it have any solder remains on the edges? Does it look like it may have broken from a costume jewelry piece? Try looking in an old Sears Mail Order Catalog. I used to have the 1909 edition and it helped me make a bunch of IDs here. I bet its a costume jewelry piece
