@battlewedge, this is an Israeli telephone token (not a coin).

Added: Sorry for my poor manners--welcome to CCF! Also, here is a link to the wikipedia page on these:

Glad to help. Just in case you are interested in going down the rabbit hole on these, here is a link to a Dutch website that deals with telephone tokens (and other types of world tokens):

Just to add, in case it's not clear from the above links: like Israeli coins, these tokens are dated using the Hebrew calendar. Your token is dated Year (5)726, which converts to AD 1966.
