It's a medal or token of some sort; not a coin.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Collecting currency for over fifty years, and now doing it with my daughter.

sold for $51.20



Restrikes of the early mint medals, some made in the 20th century, will sell for about a tenth of this amount.

The OP's piece appears to evidence more wear than most I've seen. As such, and not seeing it in-hand, I'm unable to tell if it's a restrike. Perhaps, it was someone's pocket piece? The restrikes were typically of bronze composition.
