I've searched google and I cannot find this exact coin. I've looked on NGC "world coins", etc... The image of this exact coin does not appear. I believe it's a "Reale" but I cannot figure it out. Also U wonder about authenticity as well.
The date is worn off by the looks of it.

The date is on the pillar side, the lowest of the three lines of script. Looks like 7 0 0 or 7 0 9, for a coin of early 1700s, consistent with Philip V.
The rendering of the lions and castles between the crosses does not look like that on an authentic coin, but others out here have a lot more experience with discerning authenticity of these types.

@nelson9225, I hear that brotha! I am questioning it as well. It definately has wear but is it real wear?

Looks like the famous tic-tac-toe coin.

By the way, straighten your lampshade, willya?

It appears to be a copy of this gold 2 escudo coin minted in Lima, 1709.

(I've also posted some info on your Ottoman coin which might be helpful, over on that thread)

@ Tdz.... You are right on point man! Wow! I looked at some listings on that gold excuse and it's pretty much a perfect match! I guess this is either just a souvenir coin or was an old counterfeit and the gold wore off! And your reply on my other thread, yup it's a Para, definately not a Kurush! Thanks again,a
