I believe it to be french, it said 1789 - 1889, on 1 side it seemsto have lots of men with swords either admiring or trying to attack someone in the middle with trees in the background, and on the front it seems to have the dates and im really not sure please look at photos

This is not a coin, but a medal commemorating the centennial of the French revolution of 1789. Your medal is full of revolutionary symbols like the fasces and the Phrygian cap, and also the glorifying crowd, celebrating the abolishment of the Ancien Régime.

This particular example would bring around $160 at market. Very nice coin. Feel free to post more if you like. I enjoy helping to the best of my ability.
