It looks cut and edge smoothed. Maybe there was a bezel it had to fit into. Or a belt buckle for like a rabbit or something.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

Repeat pressure to produce the fold and smoothing. No idea why.

A details coin , out of round . Multiple rim issues . Also a scratch on face ,not a fan .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

Here's a good spare time project. Make a ring out of a silver coin.

I found one of these partially completed in a junk bin, kind of like your square dime. It was made by the first method - hammering the rim until it mushrooms to form the ring. The center of the ring hasn't been cut out, so the image of the monarch (Leopold II of Belgium) is still there.

One of the Imitatios family operated businesses most likely.

That would be my best guess.
