    Well, it is not a coin. I am inclined to think it may have been an automotive adornment of some sort. It began it's life as two pieces and appears it was adhered together with epoxy or something.

    What makes you think the two discs were joined together at one time? ~ Chris

    when i found it it was connected at the top like a clam shell. you can see the notch and they fit back together seamlessly.

    Maybe something similar to an opium coin. Just a wild guess. Edit-but I like @Danomite explanation best.

    I don't think so. I think it just happens to be a coincidence that both discs were together. ~ Chris

    It’s appears to be an Indian Motorcycle emblem. Probably from an accessory. The other piece looks like an electrical box knockout (slug).

    Good one on the knockout. That lump is the tab.

    It is probably part of a Indian motorcycle advertising piece or maybe part of a old Pontiac Chief car advertising piece. I have one of the Pontiac Chief pieces and is really awesome.
