Well, it is not Carolingian, that I am sure of. Forked crosses sometimes appear on English hammered coins, but they do not look quite like this. Weird coin, the sans serif letters look more modern than medieval.

That is an interesting piece. I think it says "DIOS SALVE" on the top two lines, but what about the third? Also, I can't find a single coin on either numista or xeno with those two words so maybe this is a church token of some sort?

Interesting coin, I believe it's a crusader type. I don't have access to my books at the moment but I would check in that area.

The details on the "dios salve" side look hand-carved onto the coin; if it's supposed to be a mediaeval coin, then it may have been "tooled".

On the other side, I can't tell if it's been double-struck, or struck over another coin type, but there's clearly a second cross at 45 degrees to the main one.

Thanks to all! "Dios Salve" seems to be correct one, this seller selling mostly Spain's coins at the moment, so could be part of collection.
