Hi All,
New here :)
I was wondering if you could please help me out? I have found this coin at a storage auction and I have no idea what it is. It looks either Hindu or Jewish.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Islamic, actually - the six-pointed star with dot in the middle is the "Seal of Solomon", a lucky charm in some Islamic regions. Specifically, this coin is from Morocco; most Moroccan cast bronze coins have the Seal on them.

The date on these coins is written using "Western" numerals. I believe it is "1274" in the Islamic calendar, which would convert to AD 1857.

Yes good work @sap. @micc, I think your Falus is similar to this one listed on numista, but maybe not exactly:
