Need help identifying coin
My mother found this coin at work, (she works in the cash office counting tills and all that) and we do not know where it is from. Anyone good with coins can tell me what it is?

These seem to be Arabian letters.

Curious, I drew that image over google image search. It just came back as coin. Funnily though, quite a lot of people seem to have taken photos of coins on a brown table. They come in all shapes and sizes.

Can you pick it up with a magnet? It can't be worth much, either way, though.

Idk, don't really have a magnet handy for such situations.

It could be an arcade token for playing pinball machines and the like. Consider

It's a token from "#1 Vietnamese Happy Ending Nail Salon and Massage".

Same design on both sides

You can look here.
If you click "view all currencies" near the top left, you can browse through the circulating coins of all countries, and maybe spot it. I didn't.

If it's really the same on both sides, I think that you have -- as Gwaithmir suggested -- some kind of non-monetary token. Modern coins with exactly the same thing on both sides are pretty rare, and virtually every coin I looked at had a picture and/or a number on at least one side.

How big is it?
