@moom, that is pretty interesting. I'm trying to read the inscription. It looks like "LORD LUPU" or perhaps "LORD LUAU" on one side and something like "GATAS XXVIII" on the other. The letter forms don't strike me a being particularly old though.

Here is a slightly improved version of your first pic to help others continue the search for an identification:

It looks like "LORD LUPUS" to me, but I can't really make sense of that in relation to anything other than a Spanish heavy metal band and lupus being Latin for wolf which may be the image in the center if oriented correctly.

I think that it is a fantasy piece, made for a game or something. Deliberately made to look like it was from the middle ages.

Agree with the "Lord Lupus" reading. The "portrait" is that of a wolf or werewolf.

It's some kind of fantasy coin.
