Another from the above book that I missed previously, presumably also a souvenir of the Diamond Jubilee.

Obverse BOVRIL ℞. 50 TIMES MORE NOURISHING THAN ORDINARY EXTRACT OF MEAT OR BEEF TEA; Brass, 28.5mm



I found one at last only to find its different! 50 times doesn't appear as on this one they've substituted Bovril is infinitely, so there is another out there somewhere.  :o

This is pretty much why I gave up on Bovril tokens.
No matter what you find, there's always something else. Out there and tempting you to search until you drop.
