You have found half of a magician's coin. These are made from real nickels and one half (the one you found) is hollowed out and another ground down to fit in the hollow. These two-headed or two-tailed coins sell for a few dollars in novelty stores. Jakes Marketplace on the web charges about $8 for most varieties.
