...saw this in the field today and thought it would be a tricky one. Possibly a French copper hammered or forgery? It looks like the shield of France on the obverse and a long cross with crowns in the angles on the reverse?

Could it be a jetton, or maybe that is the same as a token?  Looking in my Gordon Bailey book there are jettons similar although the obverse side with the shield is not shown in the book.

Running with Derek’s suggestion of a French coin and a bit of googling, it looks as though it may be a Herni 111 Douzain of Dauphine 1574-1589 coin/forgery:
