The first link fails as too slow to load. [for me down-under anyway]

A search on eBay gives 287 results for Argentina tokens,

this one looks good... 15 DIFF GRAPE HARVEST TOKENS

I imagine these were attached to a bottle with a wire perhaps?

I have a pair that are similar:  BEL OISEAU REIMS around the cap of maintenance; rev. 1876 CHAMPAGNE EXTRA-DRY.

The second piece has the same obverse but the reverse is blank.

Both of these are usually included in Isle of Man collections as the eagle on the cap of maintenance is the Stanley crest and is used on the copper coins of James Stanley, 10th Earl of Derby, 1702-1736.

Fribourg/Freiburg: I find that it is "on the cultural border between German and French Switzerland" Source.

I see your latest piece has the usual hole, have you discovered the method of attachment to a bottle? My guess, attached to the wire holding the cork in place.
