Threepence maybe? The other side is blank. Little to go on, impossible to Google. Looks hopeless to me: 21.2 mm, 4.7 grammes. Non-magnetic. Made to look like copper.

Any more info on Jubilee products' address or business? Googling didn't help.

No, what do you want for your money?  ;D

Found four more types in the supplement. Probably swallowed up over the years by the big boys.

Would that mean "UK gaming token?"

I did find a Jubilee products in the US, doing saccharine illustrations. Not the same clubb, I think.

I think its safe to assume that as its listed.

There have been very few mistakes discovered; R. Hayes has done a tremendous amount of work on these, the more you research the more you realise this.

Great. Thank you. So the book is on UK gaming tokens only? One puzzle less...

The "3 Jubilee" piece is likely for 3 (old) pence....

I have the type Hayes 215.2 and nothing else for this issuer.

It has "J P" to one side and "L" to the other side. All letters very plain and to the same size.

Jubilee Products Limited I see listed in the index in the group titled...  "Amusement & Vending".....

However - then I got a search result from google books...

From (1973) the recreation management yearbook... the other companies names nearby were definitely amusements.....

Jubilee Products Ltd.
8 Rushgrove Avenue
Hendon, NW9

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

Slightly different, it is Machine Tokens so that is anything that goes in a coin-slot machine. I.E. Amusement machines, vending machines, Car Wash, Public convenience, Gas, Laundry etc.

Brilliant, gentlemen. I'd never thought we'd get this far from so little information. Thank you all.

At Britain's coin machine show, the Amusement Trades Exhibition, held Nov.  28 - Dec.1 1966 in London, among the exhibitors listed in the US magazine Billboard of Nov.26 1966, Jubilee Products is mentioned as a fruit machine manufacturer introducing a new range of Riviera fruit machines for use in clubs and a Tankard series for pub or arcade sites.

Jubilee Products was owned by an Australian Company Aristocrat.

The company Jubilee Products was set up in the UK by two men with the lovely and unbelievable names of Nutt and Muddle from Australia where they were also known as the New Century Novelty Company.

I recently added a page to my web site Aristocrat - Jubilee Products will be found lower down on the page.
