I have come to the conclusion that the object is not a coin but an amulet of Chinese current production. This on the base of a translation of the ideograms:

大 仙 座 ? (large, immortal, pedestal,?)
永 保 平 支 (for ever, garantie/to protect, calm, to sustain)

which wish good omen.

Thank you for the attention.

 :001_smile: Just for the record:

永 保 平 支 - yong bao ping zhi
大 仙 座 鎮 - da xian zuo zhen

First one says yong bao ping an - be safe forever

Second says Da xian zuo zhen - immortals/God is with you

These are fortune amulets.
