I had this fall out of a tin of coins today- is it a coin or a button?

it's 26mm diameter, but under 2mm thick.

The crown looks vaguely scandinavian...

Coins 728x90

I think that is a Marquess' coronet (four strawberry leaves and four silver balls). A button is likely to be plain on one side. I guess it is some sort of token.

It’s a livery button, it has the remains of a loop on the back. The makers marks and address are usually on the back around the loop. Late C18 to mid C19.
