Hello my friends, can you help me? With an internet search I found it could be Ayutthaya or Angkor

It's probably Zinc if that helps

Khmer Kingdom issued coins in lead as well.
Weight suggests that this may well be one of them.

Lead survives better than zinc.

The seller mentioned Ayutthaya and gave me those measures. But I believe it is from the Angkor / Khmer empire.

@oak, your coin is pretty similar to this Lead Unit from the Kingdom of Angkor (Zeno.ru #102997). Evidently these were made for many centuries, so I'm thinking that some slight design variation is to be expected. I agree with @sel, that it is lead rather than zinc.
