Got nowhere with this one. My guess is that the brand name starts with M (or the product is M-shaped) and the model is P29.

There is a bar/nightclub called P29 on ul. Piotrkowska 29, Łódź, Poland.

Its current logo is nothing like the token, but I guess it could be a previous one. Just plucking at straws...

this token from "strafinrichting wortel" has the same logo.
it is used for a drinks vending machine in a belgium prison.

maybe this will help to find out what p29 means...

The triangle makes more sense on your second piece also. Taken together with the "M", it forms the scales of justice. I now wonder if the P on your first token stands for "pénitentiaire" or "prison".

The logo is that of Federale overheidsdienst Justitie (see below)

strafinrichting wortel = Prison of Carrot Colony 17 2323 Carrot

The prison of Wortel was until 1993 a tramp colony. With the abolition of the tramp law, the penal institution was put into use to house convicts. The buildings were converted, better secured and renovated.
