Weight should be 5 grams if this a normal weight coin.
But most often the reverse was polished off the coin, making it lighter than normal, removing the design.
So if less than the 5 grams the coin was probably altered.
If the obverse has a rim and the reverse doesn't, another clue that it was removed from the surface of the coin.
If you see fine scratches, that is also a clue that it was removed.
To be missing the opposite, is not a common thing to find unless the coin was altered.

We love to see coins! If you can, please post clear images of both sides of the coin.

As coop noted, the weight is important here. There are a few reasons that this could happen, but it's rare.

We will need pictures to help you but it sounds like it is an altered coin.
