The script is Hangul, which makes the piece Korean. The word inscribed is 카텐 which means curtain. If there are two holes in the sides, this is a weight hung on the lower side of a curtain in order to keep it hanging straight down.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
