    More info:
    Looks like Elizabeth II coin but the neck is bigger than a normal one of the time.

    I see what you mean by Elizabeth the II, but the detail on the coin isn't good enough for us to tell what it is. Try putting water on it and taking a picture. That can sometimes help. Or put a piece of paper on it and rub over the coin with a crayon.

    Probably a Victoria farthing (please give size, next time).

    Do you think you could post more pictures? @Leysaoo judging from the photos that you've already posted, I don't think it depicts Victoria as the bust on your coin appears to be facing right. Whereas on the coinage of Victoria, her portrait faced left. Therefore, I believe your coin is rather one of George III due to the portrait placement and the remaining lettering.

    The lettering looks like it says GEORGE instead of VICTORIA
