Believe it or not, that's a 1952 piece. 1959 does not exist. The lower bar of the two is has some dark grime on it, but it is there. Look closer and you'll see it. I didn't at first . Otherwise, the last '9' does not look like the first which wouldn't be right.
The coin is 100% authentic, they look a bit crude and smooth.
Compare the date digits with this piece I found online:
