looks like a iron token with a thin nickel layer around it.
where the nickel is weared off, you see rusty iron.

Here is another the iron shows rust with the nickel wafer each side. It shows more clearly on a scruffy one but I only have unc ones.

my token has no rust, but it sticks very well to a magnet. so there must be iron inside.
and the cheapest way to make this is electro plating...

They are definitely nickel clad rather than plated you must just take my word for it until you find a scruffy one and maybe dissect it.

Only other one that I can recall at present is a generic one that has 6p on both sides but there are probably others.

Here is a picture from Numista.

maybe i misunderstand the word clad.
i thought this were different layers of metal pressed together.
like in de euro coins.
the core of a 2 euro coin has been made of 3 layers.
brass - nickel - brass.
but even when you break the coin. it is hard to see.

The site also says: Companies House does not verify the accuracy of the information filed ...I am reminded of Mark Twain saying reports of his death were highly exaggerated!

Meybbe so - but that site is all the official information logged with the government - if you are registered on the UK you will be on the site else operating illegally....

Anyway it seems they changed their registered name to JPM Interactive Ltd.
