Thank you both, Anthony and Dale  :)
Bit early for newyear
Dated tokens give happiness for just one year, this one is undated so, I suppose  ::) that means "good luck" for ever....
For the moment, I have recorded 4 types showing a rooster :  undated and dated "33" (1333), 1334, 1335 & 1336; the "good luck" formula differs according to the type (glittering / piroz or mubarak new year).
Each type may exist in different metals and size.
