This is not a coin, but rather an amulet which is more like a good luck charm than a coin.

Date : The style of manufacturing suggest this amulet was made in the 18th or 19th century.

Reference : I have not yet found a reference for this type.

Grade : good Fine to VF.  The small nick at the top is a casting flaw, and part of the original manufacturing.

Size : 65.5 mm.  Weight : 66.5 grams.

Obverse and Reverse : Chinese inscriptions which I have not yet been able to translate.  While they look similar on both sides, they are different inscriptions.
