Metro token?
« on: November 14, 2019, 09:18:06 AM »
I got this token in a group of tokens. Brass. 25mm. All it says is "Metro" and "5". Does anyone have any ideas?

I think the decoration is rice. It looks too expensive and elaborate for a metro token. There are also shops called "Metro".

The rice motif is very reminiscent of the South Korean 50 won coin - surely too close for coincidence?

Some form of shop/drink/amusement token from South Korea?
