Kindly identify

It may not be a coin at all.

I think it is a modern fantasy based on an Islamic coin as you say, but I haven't found a definite prototype yet. I'm confident it is not very old.

Would it be possible to see larger photographs of the two sides?

Looks like Spanish tourist jewellery. There is a small dent at 12 o'clock on the right picture and a flat area at 12 o'clock on the left picture that may be an indication that there was once a loop on the piece.
