Brass  26 mm  8,76 g 
Many thanks for your help!


Speculation: S.G.E.B. could be Sociedad General de Electrificaciones de Barcelona, since today, a company called Sociedad General De Electrificaciones has a branch office in Barcelona. The date is towards the end of the period that the Tranvia of Barcelona was electrified. Wheel and rails could well refer to trams. Note: date should be at 6 o'clock. The banner runs diagonally on a shield.

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


Peter, many thanks for your help.
One of the problem is the word CENTAVOS not used in Spain (PESETAS and CENTIMOS)
Maybe a country of Central or South America spanish language. The word CENTAVOS in Brasil it was used laternot in 1911.
I will be going to keep on looking...
Thank you


No luck with searching however it has occurred to me it may equally be for use on a paddle steamer.
Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.


This is what I envisioned. Hard to find a good image this was the nearest.

Many thanks to my old friend Kushi he  identified this token!
Initially, I thought for the drawing that I was a transport token.
It was suggested to be a token connected with river transport, boat to steam, then connected with railroads. Completely this woke the interest to big Kushi specialist in transport tokens.
He discovered to treat a token of Portugal S.C.E.Bombarralense,
a club that is dedicated to the sport. I still did not get any information on his use.
