I wonder if there is place left for yourself in your house, Mal. Do you sleep in the garage? :D

Yes the collection takes priority over where I rest my head. Unfortunately I lost the original images when I compressed those two scans so will have to do them all again!  ::)

The interesting thing regarding these is that many are of quite recent manufacture; for instance the latest of the Swiss ones date to 1979.  :o

As a plastic collector I occasionally acquire metal play coins as well as the much superior (ok ok ) plastic ones. Just found a Nuremberg C Balmberger made coin for the French market, not in Rogers although he left a gap for it as 1624. In order to prevent my dedication to plastics being contaminated by metallic objects I have of course bunged it on Ebay !

Interesting piece. For similar pieces of C. Balmberger look here. As we call Nürnberger counters made for non-German markets German, this piece should get a German categorisation also, shouldn't it?

Origin unknown of this, I imagine the Miniature Works could have been another German factory. The childlike figures; to me are a boy [L] and a girl [R] [no cents are mentioned]

I found out some more on this topic.
In fact they were made by Marcel Beyers  in Rue Monfort, Liège, Belgium.
He specialised in making miniature copies of items sold in the family grocery store.  The brands were happy to collaborate.

Values: 5, 10 and 25 for the years 1935 and 1936

That is useful information.

I acquired the miniature works 10 of 1936 very recently. ...It might be on here somewhere else?

The children look like Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

I am curious to know what metal that Edward VII is? ...they are usually copper. This one too is the rarer mule it should have read Coronation half farthing.

Then I had to get mine out to compare and as they are so hard to read I scanned them all.  ::)

These scans shows some other varieties too, such as the Edward coronation model with a different star under the bust [the one with Brasso impregnated] and an aluminium Victoria piece.
