What is the diameter of the coin, and what type of metal do you think it is made from?

Looks like Egypt, something like this: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces5849.html

It is a 5 Guerche (spelling varies) of Egypt dated 1327, regnal year 6. 5,800,000 were made by Heaton of Birmingham, UK, in 0.833 silver.

The start date of the regnal years for Sultan Mehmed V Re#351;ād would be:

1 - 27 April 1909 (7 Rabi Al-Akhar 1327)
2 - 17 April 1910 (7 Rabi Al-Akhar 1328)
3 - 07 April 1911 (7 Rabi Al-Akhar 1329)
4 - 26 March 1912 (7 Rabi Al-Akhar 1330)
5 - 15 March 1913 (7 Rabi Al-Akhar 1331)
6 - 04 March 1914 (7 Rabi Al-Akhar 1332)
7 - 21 February 1915 (7 Rabi Al-Akhar 1333)

So year six would be 04 March 1914 to 20 February 1915.

Finally, it should be mentioned that, as it has been turned into a brooch, it is not considered collectable by coin colelctors - it is more valuable now as a piece of jewellery, and certainly more valuable to you and your family as an heirloom.

The colour is wrong too, this is what the coin should look like




This is a year 4 (1913) but essentially the same coin. But I suspect this one has been whizzed clean.

It is slightly larger than a shilling.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
