This is a coin labeled Carolus.III.Del.Gratia.1776.
The tails inscription is Hispan.Et Ind.Rex.M(o).8R.F.M.
It seems self explanatory but the facial features on the heads side seem different from other coins I've found online of the same details, so I am assuming it is a replica. I am not very versed in this kind of thing though and would appreciate a second opinion. Thank you!

@elliez, first welcome to CCF. Second, in order to help you, it will be necessary for you to upload pics of this coin. Below is a link to the tutorial. It can be a little finicky at first, but is easy once you get the hang of it.

Sorry about that, I was fairly certain I had put it in the op.

Elliez,

Not a huge expert myself, but that coin looks so wrong it even fails the smell test... Just on the obverse - the denticles, date, lettering and Carolus bust are all off when compared to a legit example. Compare yours to this specimen -> http://www.coinfactswiki.com/wiki/M..._FM_8_reales

Sorry to say but your coin is a reproduction, a common fake found online and in tourist shops. Good job on your part to have compared it to legitimate examples online and determined enough to be concerned and then reached out to the forum for help.
