    It is a coin. :o

    That appears to be the Great Pyramids in Egypt, so I might guess it is from Egypt?

    Egypt 5 qirsh (piasters) 1984 (AH 1404).

    I have about 10 uncirculated ones that I received in Cairo in 1987.

    There are several different reverse designs used that year.
    This one has the dates at the bottom, the OP's coin has the dates at the top.

    Gee, my first thought was that the coin was from Latvia or Lithuania.

    No way you could be confused these pyramids with the ones in Latvia or Lithuania. Clearly these are the Great Pyramids of Cleveland. That would make this a state quarter of Ohio.

    If they were the Great Pyramids of Cleavelundd, I think keets might have said something...

    So if coin is from the Great Pyramids of Cleveland. That would make this a state quarter of Ohio. Serious, this is a US quater.

    If you turn them upside down, they're stalactites and that coin is from the Luray cavern souvenir shop.
