It is not a real US coin. I am not sure metal content, if silver cold be  a couple bucks. Before you buy things like this, you should be able to find what real ones look like and compare.

Well.....I have some bad news for you.  It definitely is not real.  What you have is a rather poor counterfeit of an 1804 Silver Dollar, which is a coin with only about 15 genuine copies known and would never be something one would just pick up.  As a fake, this piece has no value.

From the picture it looks like it may be made out of pewter.

I think you're absolutely correct there.  Pewter seems to be a common material for these fakes, especially ones of the 1804 dollar for some reason.
