Did they come with tins of coffee or did you have to send off a number of coupons for them?
Malcolm
Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.

I think more likely they came with the pack.
Previous plastic token series were signs of the zodiac and another including, Da Silva & Juan.
Lots of searching to do...............

French company founded in 1851.
From an old magazine ad I now know these date from 1965 and were in a series of 36 pieces named LE TRESOR DU GALION.  Looks like you could order a treasure chest display too!  8)  Price 5Fr!!  8) 8)
And yes definitely found in the packet / pot / whatever.

looks as though I have 36 different ones. There are also some percolator tokens and one entitling the owner to have a 'figurine' which is marked 'Mokarex' maybe a competitor? I shall put scans of all the ones I have on my website over the next few days.

four Legal tokens for percolator offers. The 11.90 F red one  is 31mm and the other three are 40mm, all made from polystyrene

I find that I have 35 Café Legal tokens, I am missing the 1593 Alsace 1/4 Ecu one that I think must be in the silver colour at 31mm diameter. If anyone has a spare I would be happy to swap for some of the others.

There is one large silver coloured one missing from the Redwine list - 1644 France Ecu and a small bronze one 1641 France Ecu

The 35 are on my website at www.plastic-play-money.org

Figleaf

The 1641 medal should be gold-coloured. It is modelled after the gold ecu 1641 of Dombes in the name of Gaston of Orléans. Poey d'Avant 5183.

Obverse legend: +:GASTOnvs.FRancorvm.VN.REG.VSVFRvitiensis.PRINceps.DOMBarvm.G. - Gaston of France (...) usufructuary prince of Dombes
Reverse legend (on the real thing): +DOMINVS.ADIVTor.ET.REDEMtor.MEvs.1641. - the lord is my assistent and my saviour

Gaston was a younger brother of king Louis XIII. His specialty was disloyalty to his family, his friends and his wife.

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

plasticman

yes, gold is a better description

The missing piece.  Is that me?   ::)

A collection of 36 pieces is here

Based on the dateless Alsatian quart d'écu in the name of Charles III de Lorraine-Vaudémont, Strasbourg mint. Boudeau 1322.

obverse legend: *:CAROLvs.Dei:Gratia:CARDinalvs.LOTHaringia.EPiscopvs.ARGENTaea.ET.METz - Charles by the grace of god cardinal of Lotharingia bishop of Strasbourg and Metz
reverse legend (on the real thing): .ALSAS.LANGRA. - landgrave of the Alsace. Note that the cardinal's hat has disappeared on the medal.

Charles had a difficult life. During much of his reign, he had to fight off a protestant contender for the see, Georg of Brandenburg. In addition, he had back trouble, which incapacitated him for long periods, to the point where he could no longer write.
