I tried to identify this coin for a while but with no success. I hope someone with a better and deeper knowledge would be able to identify it. Thank you in advance.

Some attributes resemble what is known as a "copy coin".
Poorly made examples of ancient Chinese Cash.
The color is way too much.
The blue does exist on copy coins, but doesn't cover the whole coin.
The characters are awfully ragged and might be a different script apart from regular.
I have 50 or so coins like this, but better.
Only 5 out of the 50 were so bad they could not be correctly identified.
I'm eager to see what others have to say.
I start out by guessing what it is supposed to be?
Then start to think about Chun Hua YB cursive?

This one is tough--I'm not finding a match in Hartill, although I suppose #16.57 comes somewhat close (Northern Song Dynasty, 1008-1016 AD). However, this coin is iron and uniface. @vaj, can you please post the weight, diameter, and whether this piece coin is attracted to a magnet? Thx.

Copy coins are generally smaller than normal and thin.
Script looks grass or cursive.
What might supposed to be Boo doesn't belong.
Some of mine are nonsensical or are so poor there's no correct indentity.
This could be another?

On the reverse is a very crudely rendered Manchu mint-name inscription, so it's date is Qing Dynasty or later, rather than Song.But the obverse may be copying a Song inscription, or may just be a random good-fortune phrase unrelated to any actual coin.

It looks like an old Chinese cash imitation, most likely from Java or other areas of modern Indonesia. These usually circulated at a discount to the real ones brought by merchants. The exact age and origin would be hard to track down, but I don't believe it's modern. They are actually less common than authentic cash coins, at least in the US.
