Hello and welcome to the forum. This is a piece of chert, and is the same chemistry as flint. quarts etc (SiO2)

Have you a picture from the top (flat surface above your coin) and a couple of pictures from the other side - not quite so close so I can see the whole object. And a general location.

Chris - no need! This is a bit of Chert - see my (and others) reply to the similar post.

Colin, agree but that flat top is - well, very flat and I wanted to see if it's a striking platform for a core. From the picture angle it looks like there may be two flake breaks on the far side.
I'm always picking up debitage and the occasional core when I'm out on fields round here so anything is worth a second look. 

Here's one of mine I prepared earlier - well >4000 years earlier.
