Question
I found a coin with cherries on one side with sets of three stars, and on the other side is an Asian symbol with 9 stars and the word nandiamon. what is this coin

Answer
Hi Logan,

Looks like we have here a Japanese arcade token.

I wasn't able to find such coin with inscription Nandaimon.

It could be Pachinko or Pachislo token as they have some cherries on one side.

I am sorry but I couldn't find any information more about your token since I have much more experience with coins and banknotes.

Hopefully that I helped you a bit at least what I could to do.
