This may be an imitation Cash coin.
Y'ung Cheng T'ung Pao 1723-1735AD

Cheng should appear on the bottom of the coin, instead of the top.
The symbols on the right and left are: T'ung Pao. These symbols are found on Chinese coins from the Ch'ing dynasty and are common.
The symbol on bottom, I do not recognize.
There should be two symbols on the reverse that designate the mint where this was made.

I didn't quit searching. I think I found it.

Zheng-te Tung Pao, or Zheng-de Tong Bao (正德通寶) [Top, Bottom, Right, Left]
Te being that bottom symbol.
Kind of sketchy on the info, but from 1506-1521AD.

Yours would be a replica as it should be brass.
The other side should have a dragon and phoenix.
Another version of the obverse has a decorative wide rim with one symbol on the reverse: Wen

Couldn't have said it any better. Mark is tenacious when there is a riddle needing an answer.

Agree with mhonzell. It looks to be a coin from the first half of the 18th Century Imperial China.
