Appears to be a thinly gold plated fantasy copy, unfortunately.
Even so, I would be happy to include an example such as this in my 'black' collection.

To confirm as genuine, need to know weight and approximate average diameter and thickness, and have an independently provable provenance. XRF test would also help as a next step.

These sorts of fantasy copies have occasionally been seeded into beach sands by 'clowns', in Florida and other parts of shoreline U.S., where they are likely to be found.
Genuine examples show obvious signs of seawater leeching and sand abrasion. Coin pictured shows none of these features.

@luv, actually I'm pretty sure that this isn't a counterfeit at all, but rather a Dread Pirate game token. See this prior CCF thread for comparison:

Sorry it's been a while to thank y'all for info. 2 acquaintances that my friend knows came to his house and they had 6 of these. They found them kinda hidden at an old Super Fancy horse barn where they occasionally ride. And the coins felt cool with being fun to look at. And definitely super heavy weight. let me know if it's worth sending anything example.

Even before seeing the "coins" look exactly the same size yet different metals - I knew this thread was fishy as you had spelled Doubloon - Da Bloom!

I nearly could not stop laughing - seriously Da Bloom?

Also the pamphlet underneath looks like the game instructions or the menu from whatever 1990s kid restaurant these JOKE coins come from.

Normally I would ignore these types of joke threads, but this just made me laugh!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
