You have an old Chinese cash coin from the Qing (Ching) Dynasty. Yours is a Xian Feng Zhong Bao, named for the four Chinese character on its front. Date is about 1861. The one in our picture above sold for $130 US dollars during a 2017 auction. Yours is in worse condition than ours shown, so, if it is genuine, yours is probably worth $50 or so. These coins are heavily counterfeited. I cannot tell if yours is real or fake.
