A prize from a French slot machine. See this Wiki for a comprehensive listing of these types of tokens.

From the link here is a Google translation of the history of these tokens.

Small history : From 1902, when the slot machines did not appear until 1890, a law no longer allows the distribution of cash earnings, only those who distribute gains in nature, such as candy or cigarettes, or in "to eat" tokens. The "to be consumed" token could not represent more than two to three times the stake, which itself should not exceed 10 centimes (at the beginning), and it was to be used in the establishment where the machine was located. under. These machines were installed in various public places, such as bars or carnivals. They were definitively forbidden by a decree of August 1937.
Among the principal manufacturers, one finds Bussoz, certainly the most prolix, Beraud, Caille, Lecuyer-Mejeanne-Osswald, Loubet, Nau, Soukhostavski-Verdier, Valter ...

And one more question, please:
- can these  jetons consommer be used as gaming tokens for the slot machine?
I mean - a man inserted such token in machine and can win two or three.

Yes it can be played back into the machine instead of taking the prize.

Thank you one more time!

So, it worked like this:
a man came to public place, bought such tokens, played in slot machine and if he won - he can swap tokens for something in this public place.
