Looks like a replica of the famous and somewhat rare 1877 Indian head cent .
The Indian Head Cent, which debuted in 1859, averaged a mintage of 18 million annually, until 1877, when production suddenly declined to only 852,000.

Relatively few cents were issued in 1877 because the Mint had a sufficient supply of older cents in storage to meet reduced demand for coinage that year, due to soft economic conditions that began four years earlier.

Size will typically matter in photographs, so a size reference for an unknown is a good idea.

Having said this, the details show this is a replica. They used to make drink coasters of classic coins and this is what yours reminds me of.
