I have a large brass or bronze coin that was given to me by my Grandmother. I've been all over the web trying to identify it, but no luck.

Can anyone help me to identify it?

Thanks,

Marsha

Now I know why I couldn't find it...it's not Chinese, it's Japanese. :p

May be that is a part of the charm that is hung with threads.
