    What kind of Morocco Falus coin is this?

    I can't make out the year on back 12*2 maybe?

    Was this cast or hammered?

    These were cast, and are often quite crude.

    The last digit looks like a 9 to me, but there is absolutely no way I can tell what the 3rd digit is.

    I got a big bag of about 80 of these a few months ago. They are all over the place with their sizes and weights and like yours a lot of the dates are impossible to read. The only way to tell if it's a 2 or 4 falus is by the size and weight, unless there's some marking on the coin I'm not aware of.

    Size and weight are definitely the most reliable. Generally, the bigger denominations will have more design features - a beaded border, ornamentation, a double outline of the star, etc. The simplicity of the design in the OP indicates that this is a 1 Falus coin.
