Well, take a look at the link to the left. I found a page with some details about your token.

Most likely, it is a a counterfeit, but perhaps it be best to wait for a second opinion on the matter.

This is a replica of an extremely rare gold coin from the days of the California USA 'gold rush.' Private mints sprang up to produce coins from the newly found gold, and J S Ormsby is one of the them.

Value of a genuine JSO coin: almost priceless
Value of a replica JSO coin: $1 or $2 US dollars

See Web References. The [calgoldcoin] reference lists a nicely done cast replica, which would probably sell for a few tens of US dollars. Donnie's coin is of the $1 to $2 variety.
