    Hey Guys -

    This thing is around 18mm and I have no idea what it is. It came in an 'ancient lot' so it could be anything lol. I've thought maybe even a button? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Looks like a Celtic potin coin.

    Agree, definitely looks like a celtic potin. I don't recognize yours, though. Here is one of mine for comparison:
