Hello,

I found this coin in Western Europe.
It is around 32mm (1.26in) in diameter and is made of bronze or copper.

I have looked through coins from all over the European continent and can't seem to find a match.
It probably dates to the mid-late 1800s if I had to guess based on other finds in the area and the style of the coin.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks a bunch!

French Indo-China was the area we now call Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos (post WWII).

That's a cool find and a great ID!

Wow, I've never found anything from that area of the world before.
Would never have guessed.

Thanks, JVA5th and DCMatt for the help!
You're most welcome I didn't do much just used what little clues I had with a some Google searches. Really neat find for sure though I like it.
