Default Help With a Coin

Was at a thrift shop this week and found an odd looking coin. It is brass and is dated 127 B.C. It isn't in very good shape but it was cheap so I went ahead and bought it. Anybody know anything about these?

Yes, I have seen those - they were minted in British Columbia in 127.

Is there a Maple Leaf on one side and a hydroelectric plant on the other?

Don't sell it !!! It could be worth a lot of Canadian dollars!!!

I sure someone out there knows something of this coin. There certainly can't be many of them around.

Thanks. Like I said, it's in pretty rough shape but I can make out what looks to be a maple leaf on one side and some type of building on the other. Maybe I got lucky this time.

I think those were minted by the Clairvoyants.
