Jewish? Copper round. Can someone interpret the writing or give info on this?

I found this nice copper toner at the local coin shop a while back and I am curious what the writing says, also interested in learning what I can about it. I love the Lion design.

    I think it simply says Judah in Hebrew.

    And pronounced, Yehudah.

    Lion of Judah. The Hebrew reads Yehudah (Judah). In the Hebrew Bible, see Genesis 29:35 and 49:8-10; in the New Testament, compare Revelation 5:5. An ancient and sacred symbol, there were carvings of lions in the Temple of Solomon. They appear prominently in Ancient Near Eastern art, architecture, and sculpture. Lions decorate a multitude of holy objects associated to synagogues, such as finials, Torah pointers, and much more; all are frequently characterized by exquisite beauty and sophistication.
