Coin from 1877 on one side it is an Indian head and says one cent the other side is a buffalo and says five cents Its about the size of a silver dollar and it's black in color Does anyone know what it?

If you think about it for a minute, how many pennies or nickels have you seen that are the size of a silver dollar? What you have isn't a coin and it isn't from 1877. It's a modern novelty item that can be bought in stores and used in a display or possibly as decoration. For example, I have a "Lincoln cent" tray on my desk that's copper in color but is about 120mm in diameter. It's absolutely not a penny, it's for paper clips or coffee cups.
