This weighs 4.07 grams. Diameter 23 millimeters.

One side has no features beyond the worn geometric figures. In the depressed areas I can see remnants of what may be gold plating.

The side with the crown appears to have a die crack.

Being a button crossed my mind. I wasn't the only one it seems.

Notice the wreath is half olive branch, half arrows? Typical US symbolism.
Then there's the crown.
My guess would be Royal Canadian Air Force button with a twist.

Because of the shape of the crown, with the center depression, I would start with Australia.

It's a button...typical for the 1800-1830 time frame based on the construction and backmark with the crown which is what you are seeing . Origin is likely Britain. I find many at the older colonial sites I metal detect..often coins resemble button with their shanks removed and vice versa.
