Default Old coin I found on the beach today!!

Anyone know what this is? I know itís a charm of some sort. Itís heavy. Made of bronze or brass. No seams anywhere, this coin/charm is really solid!

Do you think it could be shipwreck related?

Looks Chinese or Asian. Many of their coins have those holes in them.

well around my parts its common for Asians to toss them into the water at the beach, maybe for good luck or something idk but i do know the place them in places like above door ways due to there belief it will bring them wealth, so my guess is it was a tossed in item Neat Find none the less brother thanks for sharing GL&HH
