Some type of fantasy piece not a real coin.

Looks like an Alien on obverse... maybe you have a unique coin from Atlantis or Mu? ;)

There are numerous pseudo-ancient coins featuring pigs that have come out of Eastern Europe in the past hundred years. There's some sort of myth that goes along with them, about an ancient king who was a pig-herder who buried his treasure of golden pigs in Greece somewhere. I'm not sure which came first, the myth, or the coins. I suspect the coins (and the myth) derive from attempts to copy ancient coins that had elephants on them.

Here's an older thread with discussion about the "herd of pigs" coins. At least the pigs on the "coin" in this thread look kind of realistic.
