    Well, it is not a coin, but rather a pendant or medal for wearing around the neck.

    The obverse shows St. George slaying the dragon. latin inscription "St georgius Just? Tronus"
    The Reverse Inscribed "Securitate in Tempestate" Losely translated as as Safety/Security
    in Times of Peril.

    How Old? Sorry, i have no idea, but thse used to be popular in the 18th/19th century.

    regards
    Ed

    I cant see it very well but it looks like, as said above, an example of the many different types of this common theme George and the Dragon with a ship reverse...here is an example of one...
