Hello,

Can someone help me to identify and explain the meaning, date and value of this coin?

It seems to be made out of copper, weights +/- 16g, diameter +/- 17mm, thickness 15mm.

I'm looking forward to reading from you,

It is a paisa from India circa 1800.

We may have some experts who can narrow it down a bit, but maybe not. Unfortunately there was a lot of informal local coinage in circulation at that time and place, not well documented and not always with a date. Also, if there was a date, it may be off the flan.

Without attribution, it is worth at most a few dollars.

Good work, @andyG. Your eyes are better than mine. To match the images in Krause, rotate the first 90 degrees counterclockwise and the second 180 degrees.
