Hi Gerard,
This looks like a trial (essai) coin from 1925. There were more than one type.

100 Z?otych (Miko?aj Kopernik; Trial Strike) - Poland ? Numista

It appears copies exist:

Polish medal - Rzeczypospolita Polska 1925 - 100 Zlotych Kopernik - prĂ³ba/trial

Hope this helps.  :)

Indeed, this is a copy, a medal, rather than a trial strike. I think it was used as jewellery, as that would explain the wear.
