I think I may have found the correct attribution - an Indo-Danish cash coin from the 1600s or 1700s.
And it might be a lead coin then instead of silver I originally thought it to be.

Found this picture on the CoinIndia site. This is the closest I get to your coin. While the DOC monogram is close enough, the crown on the other side is 3D, while on all the photos in the CoinIndia gallery of Danish West Indian coins it is 2D. Take into account that this series is extremely popular among fakers, as the originals are so badly made that fakes quickly become acceptable.

CoinIndia says Weight: 0.89 gm. Diameter: 8-10 mm.

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

Your coin is in Krause as India, Danish  KM#91, with initials of Christian V.
The images are also taken from Numismaster.

Thank you for the attribution Bart! :)

Anyone having an idea on how I can clean my coin a little? An olive oil dip?
