I am almost certain it is not ancient , wondeing if it might be something made a few hundred years ago as a novelty or what. It weighs 70 grams

It appears similar to this, although obviously not it, in the British Museum  https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/C_1911-0702-1

Anyone else out there have a guess as to what it is? I do not believe it is a counterfeit coin meant to mislead someone, it came from a metal detector person in Spain and for the price of 25 euro it is quite a conversation piece no matter what. I just find it strange to be so thick and fat and weighing 70 grams for it is to be a novelty piece. Could it possibly be a token, or a weight ?
