Any help is appreciated, the details are very poor but enough to where someone should know. There is a bust facing left in a wreath on one side and and the other side look like a date of 1759 but not 100% on that. TY

Almost certainly this coin https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces35068.html although the weight seems off.

Yes, I agree, date 1859. Weight should be 5.66 g. It's always best to weigh unknown coins accurately to at least the nearest tenth of a gram.

Seeker55 it weighs 7.0 grams, so that's a pretty big difference.

I don't think that the weight posted on Numista is necessarily correct, and I don't think that the mint that made this had such strict tolerance control.
I found another website (not necessarily reliable either) that shows the weight as 6.2g. Either way, I don't think there is much doubt about the identity of your coin.
