Weight: 1.87 gms
Thickness: 3.27 mm

It may be difficult to pimpoint this specific type, as only part of the design on the left is on flan.
However, from the right side it is clear that this is arepresentative of the very large series of Southern India "Sri Vira"coinage.
See here for a previous thread which show quite a lot of different types.
