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

"Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings;
Radiating kindness over the entire world:
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,"

~ From the Karaniya Metta Sutta (Sn 1.8)

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.
