Dugniolle # 2232
PHS ET ISABEL D G HISP REGES FLAND COMS (fleur de lis
G DELA CHAMB DES COMPT A LILLE 15-60
Ecu Losange, parti Espagne et France.
Shield in Lozenge(diamond shape)

 

Unfortunately no image but it has the right date, on your example you can make out PHS and before it is the MS of COMS, with the fleur de lis between them. The reverse of yours has CHAMB D(what looks like a large O is the Golden Fleece) E.

 

This is the only one that fits.

 

So yes a Spanish-Netherlands token of Philip II dated 1560.

EDIT. https://books.google.ca/books?id=CTEVAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA140&dq=PHS+ET+ISABEL+D+G+HISP+REGES+FLAND+COMS+1560&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjI8JqP2c_LAhXEWT4KHSziBtMQ6AEINDAD#v=onepage&q=PHS%20ET%20ISABEL%20D%20G%20HISP%20REGES%20FLAND%20COMS%201560&f=false

Apparently the Arms in the lozenge are Isabel's, single women had there family arms in a lozenge. Though Philip & Isabel married in 1559, her personal arms, still in a lozenge, were used on this token.
