It appears to have the words plated in the wreath but I'm not sure

We aren't going to be able to tell ANYTHING from those pics.
At least give us size and weight.

Coins and, for that matter, tokens, don't usually formally state that they are "plated". But buttons do. So I'd assume, lacking closer pics, that this is actually a button, or at least a piece of one. Once the large loop that attached it to clothing is broken off, an old 18th or 19th century button can look surprisingly coin-like.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis

I'm with Sap. You can see where the loop was attached in the center of the wreath side.Commonly used in 1720s-1770s.
