Normally I'd expect a far eastern Islamic find to be a Haj pilgrimage token. But not this one. I can't read any of the characters and I'm wondering if it's Persian rather than Arabic. Certainly the top image looks to have Persian influences except for the Roman numerals.

The other "best guess" for a "Persian coin/token" is a marriage token; it's traditional at IRanian weddings to throw coins or coin-like objects about the place. BUt this doesn;t look like a typical wedding token to me.

I'm still thinking Iranian / Shi'ite-Islamic, because of the imagery (which is frowned upon in Sunni Islam). The names in the two larger circles are Allah and Muhammed, I believe the smaller circles contain the names of Ali and other notables within Shia Islam.

But I don;t know what's up witht he chickens, or the "1020". Some Muslims, particularly in India, practice a form of numerology where the words of verses of the Qu'ran are converted into numbers and the numbers added up to give a total number which then has a secret, spiritual meaning; I know the number "786" has such a meaning and is seen on Islamic tokens from India, such as this one. I suspect the "1020" is somethign similar.
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
