Found this coin last week in a park. It's the size of a US Penny, and has a crown image on one side and some writting on the other, with what appears to be a bike? Sorry for the bad pics, I can't get a decent closeup.
Thanks for looking.
Rich

Hi Rich,

Sorry but it's very hard to make out any detail on that coin or token. What does it say?

Cornelius, I think you identified it. It says 50 ORE NOREC 1999.

Sorry about the clarity, I haven't quit figured out how to take macro pics.

Hi Capnrich,
sometimes if you're going for resolution, you can put a coin on a flatbed scanner.  That's how I did this token:

LTR113...that's awesome! Thanks for the tip! I just found a cool RCA Treasure Token, and would love to show the group, but it's very dark. I'll try the scanner !
Thanks!

Neat token.  Did you find it in the States? Shawn

Hi Shawn,
I did find it in the states at a school I hunt a lot. 
I wasn't sure what it was so I poked around online.  I got a reply from a collector of such tokens.  Here's his reply:

I haven't seen this token before, but I'm pretty sure that it is an Asian pachinko token.  Pachinko (spelled variously) is a sort of pinball-style game played a lot in Asia, especially Japan, and there are a lot of tokens made for it.  Many of these tokens have fairly cryptic designs, often but not always including some Asian characters.  The token is modern and (as far as I know) only of nominal value, but a neat find!
