TAM-TAM is a Chau gong (bullseye gong). could try to polish it up, see if it chimes as a micro gong.
it's most likely what it was made for, maybe as a toy or miniature or something of the sort. but it won't ring with as dirty as it is.
Mini gongs are like 4" for the smallest hand crafted that work, there are precision laser cut ones down to 2", if it's the size of a half dollar it's about 1.2" and I'm doubting it was cut with a precision laser,BUT, just maybe it's a miniature from a playset or something that chimes a bit.
you know, on second thought,,,,, maybe it's an old bb shooting gallery target for plinking......
