One side reminds me of the Ruffler and Walker gaming tokens, but the other side is official and severe: don't you dare taking this past the doorman. It's not yours. What would it have been used for? Coffee machine token, maybe?

Edit: 5.0 grams and 21.1 mm.

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

Very nice and interesting. It is listed at Hayes 364 but has no other remarks. Your guess is probably the answer apart from a cup of tea. Here in Oz some places have a photocopy token - but how they are used I don't know.

the other alternative is that it is a car park barrier token.....
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

Dutch coffee machine tokens are of a limited number of sizes and so are the parking tokens (they are larger.) Don't know about their UK equivalents. Most photocopy machines work either on official coins or on cards with a magnetic strip, which may also be different in Britain.

According to the catalogue the Sutton piece is brass and 21mm.

[I just checked my two varieties of Oz photocopy tokens they are both 19.5mm.]
