Three cu-ni advertising pieces that I know little about, all 25mm.

...and Australia hasn't yet been discovered!

Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.

these were given away at the NEC (National Exibition Centre) in Birmingham, UK.

Mach 2012 will be in April

I think the same company that produced these also produced the Duckhams Oil Silver Jubilee tokens of 1977...

Andy - I saw where you got your image from....  But also found a better one of the same type....

I have a different silver jubilee piece by Cincinnati Milacron....

It has the wreath, crown and logo the same but with slight detailing differences and then "CINCINNATI MILACRON" above and then on the other side a portrait of the queen, a decorative border and "SILVER JUBILEE 1952-1977" below.

The wreath, crown and logo on the Duckham's piece would seem to match that on the piece you mentioned but not that on my piece. (For those who do not know - the Duckham's piece....  Jubilee medallion, bigger than usual, with various cars on one side..  Duckham's.... oil for cars etc..

Then looking at Malcolm's pieces I have those and a few other types - one is from "METALS '86" - another has the name as HME Verson. Bronze, Brass, Cu-Ni and Aluminium - but most types just in Cu-Ni.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

Here is a scan of my Duckhams oil piece,  Issued free with gallon of oil.  I presume the other piece is of a similar size, Using my new dual purpose magnet () I can reveal this is 44mm and not magnetic.

Here is one I just got... one logo about the silver jubilee and the other about a machine tools exhibition... 44mm diameter.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

Another Bronze 44m diameter Milacron piece... from the same dealer.

This and the other piece both have a bit of discolouration... likely that helped me with the price...

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

Here's a real Offa portrait penny for the sake of comparison.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Another something with that 1977 design now offered here....

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

Another showing Offa; different to that shown above. Bronze, 26mm.

Another, acquired today.
An oddity, not apparent to the eye is the lean to one side showing the edge reeding in both scans.

In view of the text on the coin, you can classfy this either as an advertising piee or a challenge coin. Clever way to make sure people don't throw it away...
