Though I can not read a single character of what is written on it, I am sure this one needs to be rotated 180 degrees.

Agreed, and when you do that, you will see great similarities with e.g. this piece.

I would argue that this piece fits right in with your collection of good luck tokens.

Ok here is a better image.  I will delete the other.
If anyone could diagram the script and intrepret it I would be very grateful!

Muslim religious token in the copy of Akbar Mohurs. But is the metal silver? I have seen one where the token was silver plated and inside was less pure silver (less than 40%). But I have another with pure silver.
