It looks like a copy of a 10 schillings Swiss Cantons silver coin, but this is not silver. Can you tell me anything about it?
(it's pretty thin)
Thank you!

Seems odd that the coin looks very worn, if it is a copy.

While I would say it's a replica, it could possibly be a coin that I havn't been able to find.

There is a possibility that it is a smaller denomination of coin, as the part which would display the '10' on a 10 shilling coin is worn away.

Hopefully someone else will have some more insight.

As far as I can tell, if it is indeed a Swiss 10 Schillings, it would have be minted in silver only.

While it may be a copy, explaining why it looks like bronze, in terms of its thickness, a real Swiss canton coin is very thin.
