Anyone know where I can find one of these? Or what the name of it is? It's 28.6mm in size.

Thanks!

Looks like an early Eddie Gibson one or Fred Lowe.

Leaning towards Fred Lowe as Eddie did the chinese/orental letters in red and black.

It’s part of Eddie’s Chinese Bit. Got slightly damaged and want to replace it! This is not the shell insert, but the normal coin.

You'll have difficulty finding one unless someone has an incomplete set.

Eddie stopped making this type of Chinese coins in late 1970's.

Give it a try on the dealing section. You might get lucky 🙂

I own Beggar Coins. Wrong symbols(in red), diameter and thickness. Thanks, though!

I was afraid that was the case. I'll try your suggestion, thanks!
