I see what looks like 1-1-3 at the bottom of the 2nd image. Others may be more helpful. It does look like a coin to me. If you can, post the size of the coin (diameter) and its weight. That may help people track it down.

Dear CameronK, those are not numbers at the bottom of the 2nd photo but words which read:
Top line: لا اله الا الله , La Ilah Illa Allah.
Middle line: ۵ محمد , Muhammad followed by number " 5 ".
Bottom line: رسول الله , Rasul Allah.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

I agree with Maythem, there is the same legend on both sides (ie. the Kalima) and the word in central line is likely "Muhammad", roughly written looking like "hazrat", with the mim  like a " ص" ( ::) ).

Thank you Saro, I agree with you, the middle line is " Muhammad محمد ", the word Muhammad is followed by a Persian number " 5 ۵ ".
I will correct my reply.
