I may be able to add a few varieties tomorrow when I check mine out, I have a lot of these although none of the bread.

The RAC tokens hold a special interest for me as I used to stay with an aunt in Peckham in the late forties / early fifties, she would give me the checks to count then we would take them round to the co-op in Peckham High Street to cash them in.

Just inside the door there, there was a cashiers desk where a very prim lady sat, you handed her the invoice from the grocery counters along with the money. With the change, she gave you checks to the value of the goods you had bought.

Which came first or whether they are unrelated I do not know.
Most are uniface but the two round pieces have circles on the back.

Here are three with a different sort of coating, perhaps a very late last issue?
