Not much more can be said unless someone recognizes who made it or if it was made for a specific event. Souvenir good luck pennies of this general type were made for events across the country over a long period of time. Without naming a specific event, it would likely fall into the lower end of the value scale ($5 to $20). Those with specific event names fall into a higher scale ($10 to $50) depending on the popularity of the event as a collecting topic.

7.8cm would mean about 3" in diameter. Actually that is a coaster for drinks. Those were really common a few years ago in many different types. Some were of Lincoln Cents, Mercury Dimes, etc.

They used to be sold in many places as novelties. One gas station I used to go to sold them for $1 each with an 8 gallon of gas purchase. Those are slowly becoming difficult to find and although not a real coin or token, may some day become valuable.
