4.69 gm, 26 mm
I've seen the symbols on the obverse on Bhutan & Tibet coins
Coin holder says 'Sikkim Anonymous' Early 19th century
14th cycle 28th year, =1832 AD

Edit: Looks like, 1 'Kong-par' Tangka - Tibet

Yes, definitely kong par, but he has got the date wrong: the four numbers under the 'arch' in the centre, top row 15 (cycle) bottom row 24 (year), KM C A13.1 dated 1890

This type is very common.
But there is a very rare variety (double circle around lotus).
