Can anyone tell me about this fake coin? ?

While traveling near Hue, I bought this coin from an old Vietnamese guy for $2.  He said it’s fake and thinks it came in a shaving kit. 

Update:

It’s the size of a silver dollar

    Will a magnet stick to it?

    It's not a real Morgan.  The obverse has no date or letters and the reverse is different.  I'm looking at mine right now

    This is the back. I’m not asking if it’s real, just where it came from

    Based on seeing both sides, I revise my answer. It's not pretending to be a Morgan dollar. So it isn't a fake.  It's just a generic medal, not even a coin. Where it comes from only the maker knows. Probably made somewhere around where you got it.

    It just looks like a Nickle from here. You bought a Nickle for 2$. What's on the other side?

    It is only worthwhile if it is very old,  or it is made of a more worthwhile metal.
