I think I saw one very similar on WoC one time but don't recall where.
What country and coin is this? Korea? China?

So is that 18th century?

Never heard of Toda.

It is a coin of the Quianlong emperor (Ch'ien Lung, 1735-1796) from Chengdu mint in Sichuan province, Hartill 22.335

This is a handy quick guide to Quing dynasty coins http://www.thecollectionmuseum.com/assets/downloads/An_introduction_and_identification_guide_to_Chinese_Qing_dynasty_coins.pdf

Toda [http://art-hanoi.com/toda/ ] is a catalogue of Annamese/Vietnamese coins, and they did copy the designs of many Chinese coins, but I'm sure this is from China itself. Toda 212 is in a neater style and has different characters on the reverse.
