Have no idea where this goes

This coin is 23mm in diameter. I don't know where this is even from. First I thought Ireland, but just don't know.

It's a Hungarian New Year token. The legend means: bring in the new year. The pig's head is a good luck symbol, as is the four-leaf clover. Prosit collects them.

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

Thank you Peter. Skee should have taken a closer look at the writing on the coin while taking its picture.
