brass  19mm
I am not able to find any reference on
obverse Société Internationale d'inventions Nouvelles (?) Paris
reverse 100 réis (designation of Portuguese and Brazilian coin)

This appears to be a amusement machine token. This is very similar to many others made by the Freres Cartaux [Cartaux Brothers] company of Paris, note their triangular FC mint-mark on the reverse. 19mm was a standard size for many machines.

More of course needs to be discovered concerning the society and also where it was used. [We had mention of a Madeira token recently, this too was denominated in Reis]

Found this mangled text (letters in blue are my interpretation).

Société d'INVENTIONS NOUVELLES, 17, rue Jules-Vallès, Paris- OD Gf st-EiaNAT. Maison fondé en 1894. Pas coi'-oÈt

Source: La Presse, 9th May 1911, number 6895.

Looking at the address with Google Earth, I think it's an old factory. It may have had branches in other countries.

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

I am still interested in found details about Ste. Inte. d'Inventions Nlles Paris 100 Réis token...

I found a catalogue of the 26th Exhibition of Paris, 9 to 24 of May of 1934
where one of the exhibitors is Chambon Simon, inventions nouvelles, 9 Caille to the Monsoult Seine et Oise.
Here the catalog  https://www.google.pt/#q=inventions+nouvelles%2C+9+Caille+to+the+Montsoult+Seine+et+Oise.

And  a jeton of Sociéte des Invents et Découvtes  7 janvier 1791

These machines would have been exported to various countries and the appropriate tokens supplied with it; this time presumably for a Portuguese destination or colony.

I have a few similar types of European slot machine tokens shown on my page here.
