I don’t have any conclusions, just questions.

However, I noticed a couple of instances of WW)S and a couple of other 
words that look as if they could have come from Yiddish, so I concluded 
that the “coin” could be a Kabbalistic medalion derived from Yiddish 
using a non-standard Yiddish, or even Yiddish code. It’s a guess.

I was looking for archaic Hebrew writing, which would indicate a 
true Hebrew coin.
