The obverse appears to bear the reigning title as well as the classic 'universal currency', and the reverse reads (to the best of My knowledge) 'peace under heaven'.

I cannot find anything on this coin, I am almost certain that it's meant to be a palace metal, but I am unsure to wetter or not this is an unlisted one, an attempt at a hypothetical one, a fantasy piece or just a counterfeit.

Thanks in advance.

It looks to me like a modern reproduction.

What is the weight and diameter?

It is almost exactly 44mm, however I will need to set up my scale before I can get the correct weight.

The top image presents as a coin issued for Emperor De Zong, 1887-1908. But I can't find any references for 44mm coins issued for De Zong.

The bottom image doesn't look like what I would expect on a De Zong coin. Does anyone know the significance of those characters?
