I believe it is a Thai amulet with Buddha on reverse.

I can't read Thai but I am guessing this is Ajahn Maha Bua Image

On the left the monk’s name is “Phra Khru Obhāsa- - -ānukicca”. The hyphens are the letters that aren’t clear to me. On the right it says that the amulet was made for his 50th birthday.
