I have exactly zero info to provide assistance and/or a starting point.

I have exhausted all resources and myself as well. Can't sleep till I know.

Kinda looks like a game piece of some kind? Or a souvenir from a gift shop?

It's pretending to be an old spanish colonial 8 reales cob with pillars & waves on one side and a cross on the other.

@yellow88, better to go to sleep--this one isn't worth worrying about. I agree with @john1 that it is a game piece or party token rather than a coin.

This is a modern fantasy in imitation of a Nuevo Reino Mint eight reales which is a scarce type. The die maker didn’t care to make the legends correct and so it looses even as an educational piece in my opinion. Consider throwing it in the sand at the beach and let us see if it pops up again after giving a thrill to its next finder. You might let someone think they won the lottery for a moment.
