What this for a coin???

OK, time for wild guesses. :ninja:

 

One side has a crowned coat of arms, and the inscription PHILIPPUS (possibly V) D.G.; the "U" is the bottom of that side. The other side (with the cross) says HISPANIARUM REX and has a date. Hmm, "1719" maybe?

 

PHILIPPUS V HISPANIARUM REX would mean Philip V King of the Spains. So this button may have been made from an 18c Spanish coin ...

Hehe, I already fixed "the Spaniards" in my previous reply. (Should read "the Spains"). Here are some coins from those years:

The "medio real" coin (half real) from Cuenca looks fairly similar to the button depicted in the initial message. Not being an expert on such coins, that is about all I can comment ... now let the real (pun intended) detectives do their job. :ninja:
