Hmm sorry but I can't quite make out enough detail to help ID. I assume this isn't your piece of jewelry or else you would post a close-up pic. Those 5 Para coins are nickel as opposed to silver so I'd bet the top row comprises base metal coins too. Gone are the days when these were used as a store of wealth I guess.

The mystery coins might not be actual coins, but rather coin-like items specifically made for use in jewellery like this. SO they may be blurry and indistinct not because of the photograph, but because the actual coins are blurry and indistinct. Notice how the bottom row of coins are held onto the chain with clamps, but the top row of coins have soldered loops at top and bottom.

@vic, if you have ready access to this piece, can you please just take pics of a single coin for us? Front and back please. Thx.

Sap has already provided the most likely scenario.

@DBM , I think this is the most possible scenario, but who spend that much time to do that fake coins lol, it makes it scarce.
