It's not familiar to me, which suggests not common (in which case worry about fakes), not Chinese, or not a coin.

The lettering doesn't look like standard Chinese cash coins, it looks more like Thai letters.

Thanks for the input, so probable not Chinese.. Could it be a Pitis coin from Indonesia / Malaysia or erhaps like you say Thailand?
I put it on a local online marketplace and several people are bidding and asking what I want for it, but all I want is information before I sell or trade it.

Hello, someone told me that it probably is Chinese though, the source says its probably around 1200/1300 Yuan Dynasty or early Ming Dynasty? It might not be a very common coin indeed he says. But can anyone confirm something abot this? I checked many webpages to compare but it's like Chinese for me :P

Maybe someone else has ideas, but I don't see it in Hartill. The left character on the first picture rules out almost all Chinese coins with a square hole (including all the coins from the Ming Dynasty).

Here are links to images of the closest types I found, but not of them are very close:

It does sorta look like Thai but I think BJ was on the right track with his third link. It seems too light to be a Chinese coin, and with the odd writing I am inclined to think it is a Imitation (like the third link) but from the south not the west. Maybe made of tin. Similar but not the same as these.

Yeah, the letters remind me of the flowing of the Kannada language of Southern India.
