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.
Khandhānaṃ rāsaṭṭhaṃ, āyatanānaṃ āyatanaṭṭhaṃ,
Dhātūnaṃ suññaṭṭhaṃ, indriyānaṃ adhipatiyaṭṭhaṃ,
Saccānaṃ tathaṭṭhaṃ aviditaṃ karotītipi ‘avijjā’.

It prevents knowing the meaning of heap in the aggregates, the meaning of actuating in the sense-bases, the meaning of voidness in the elements, the meaning of predominance in the faculties, and the meaning of suchness in the truths, thus it is called ‘ignorance’.
(Visuddhimagga XVII. 43)
