Can we have the size and weight please?

However, it does look like one of the tiny fanams. Experts can give the precise attribution, but most are worth $15-20.

I second the gold fanam. I'm no expert on them so I cant give you an exact ID but more than likely a fanam.

I agree: gold fanam.
Fakes of these exist in good gold, (used in jewelry?), - Krause warns of their existence, - but I have no idea on how to identify them.

Probably a silly question but are you sure its gold and not silver?
Weight and size seems to match a silver Chuckram?

Your size and weight match a fanam. This seller has lots of them on a BIN for $19.95. Not rare.

Chuckrams sell for somewhat less. They're similar in size to a fanam.
