william henry harrison token 1841

Here's a story...I was in an antique store in the desert and I came accross a big bag of buttons. the woman sold it to me and I was surprised when I went to pour them out and found a coin or token. It was a William Henry Harrison coin that I believe may have silver in it and is a copper colored. It dates back to 1841 and I believe it speaks of his 1 month whig Presidential service. On the back it reads, "WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON BORN FEB. 8, 1773 FAMED INDIAN FIGHTER CAMPAIGN SLOGAN "TIPPE CANOE AND TYLER TOO" FIRST WHIG PRESIDENT, SERVED 1 MONTH DIED APRIL 4 1841"
on the front of coin his face and "1841 NINTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES 1841"
If any coin buff can tell a little about this token, please contact me via email @ www.astralina@hotmail.com
I don't know it's worth if there is any. I have searched books and the web but have failed to understand it's value.
thanks for your time in this matter and hope to hear from one of you smart coin people.
ASTRAL!!!

My wife and i were metal detecting at an old cellar hole in croydon nh and i dug one up. Its in very good condition. I dont know much about the coin, all the pictures ive seen online show the coin with a hole in the top, as does the one i found so my best guess is that it was worn as some kind of necklace.

the hole was to keep from losing the coin, they either attached a string or attached it to their clothing.
