This medal looks to be modern. The reverse looks to be in imitation of Egyptian hieroglyphics. I do not read hieroglyphics well enough to know what it intends to say. The "obverse" with the man sitting is also cryptic. It could be a tourist piece from the Pyramids or a good luck piece from a Shriner's mosque. I have no idea, but it is obviously not a coin. It was never struck by any government. It is not a token issued by a merchant as a trade token or advertising token. The medal might be worth ten cents to a dollar as a curio, but to be worth more you would need to supply more information.

 

Where did you buy it? How did you come upon it? What did the seller tell you?
