I would bet your button is made out of brass, measures 24mm in diameter, and carries a "RICH GOLD COLOR" backmark. According to the book, American Artifacts of Personal Adornment, 1680-1820: A Guide to Identification and Interpretation, by Carol L. White, your button dates from the late 1700's to the early 1800's.  The image shown on your button is a fairly rare stylized tobacco leaf and bloom.  It is also thought that the spelling of the word color (as opposed to colour) indicates that the button is of American manufacture, and was originally gold gilted.
