From a bit of googling around, it seems it might be a coin from the Bar-Kochba Revolt. Search for coins around that era and you get quite a few that look like it.

Yeah it is a Jewish coin, it seems to be from the time period when Judea was prominent due to the grapes and the date palm. I have seen a coin like this before, I don't remember what they called it but it had to do with some ancient Jewish revolt.
Hope I was able to help

I believe the writing is Hebrew at least from what I can see. That should give you a direction to go in.
