Re: Help me pls...A Guess at What It Is

My guess is that the token memorializes the sixteenth century novel "The Monkey King: Journey to the West," and its Buddhist reference. It's monetary worth is probably metal bullion value plus 5 US$.

The Monkey King is sent by Gautama Buddha ( )from China to Central Asia and India. The story chronicles his quest to retrieve sacred Buddhist texts.
