Going through some of my old things while trying to pack for moving (Never Fun) and found this thing... I dont remember where I got it from or from who... so im completely blind when it comes to finding something out about it. I dont even know if it is real gold or what... The width is no wider than a quarter.

Side:

On the tip of my brain. I have seen those before, but I think the originals were supposed to be gold. And yours appears plated. Trying to do a search right now, to see if I can spot one.

 

Edit:

Found it a Sycee

Sycee are usually in silver. China, like India, was a country that traditionally used silver as the basis of money, unlike European countries which favored gold after the 1800s.

 

This piece is a souvenir / fantasy piece. The style is not even close and is practically cartoonish.
