send the image of both sides of the coin (?) to Ricardo De Leon Tallavas (tallavas@aol.com) if it is what I suspect but I hesitate to go out on a limb, too many people with saws!

That coin doesn't appear to be ancient to me.

 Numismatist X stole the words right off of my tongue! It definitely looks old, but not ancient or medieval. It is a very interesting coin, I hoped the reverse said 'Cheese' so it would be a Ham and Cheese coin ;) I have not seen anything like it before. I would guess 1600's or 1700's

Maybe it is not coin at all.

 What do you think it is? (don't worry, I don't have a saw)

The photo is highly pixelated. Assuming it's authentic for a moment...It looks Roman. L VI might refer to Legion Six. The legions often overstruck their coinage, especially when stationed in Judea. Big speculation...this legion served along with Leg X during the troubled times of 70 AD and 130 AD. If real (BIG IF), and as I speculated, it's worth some $.

UPDATE: Additional info just fell in my lap. The Roman VI Ferrata Legion did serve in Judea. American Archaeology Abroad is conducting excavations this summer at Legio, the fortress of the VIth Legion. See: www.jezreelvalleyregionalproject.com  for more info, if you can contact someone maybe they are familiar with this double counterstruck coin.

if it is a newer coin, it could be a canadian token (like hudson bay's)
