You can refer these posts here & here to understand about these enigmatic  religious Hindu tokens.

Many varieties exists with  different metal compositions.

What is the metal of the  token you are possessing ?

AFAIK  these tokens with silver & gold compositions are equivalent to market value of gold/silver+ making charges , however in case of  copper tokens  normally in range of 1 - 2 USD/piece , as these are all contemporary tokens  thus doesn't bear any numismatic  value rather than religious sentiments.

Cheers ;D
Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

I love these things...the copies not the original old stuff...and temple tokens in general, can't afford that old stuff and an not wise enough to know one if I saw one.  I have a couple but as you might imagine, they are a little difficult to find in a coin shop in Texas  ;D

That is a BIG image!

Not sure if fake is the right word. It is an object that has been made for a very long time, lately in cheaper metal, but its purpose is unchanged.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I wouldn't call the fakes either.  Modern copies of old designs but with the same purpose.
