    Running out of original options for Victoria! Here is a rather tatty medallion from her Wedding:

    How about we move on to Female Rulers other than Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth II? That should give scope for some new options.

    For Example, this one of Queen Anne - a Crown from 1713:

    Or this, which is a Groat from Mary I of England - daughter of Henry VIII and known as "Bloody Mary" for martyrdom of protestants as she tried to take the Country back to Catholicism.

    Thank you for posting this token. I was told mine was an engraver token, like a store card type of thing. I will have to do some research, beyond what I have done.

    Note the "Deep Hair Lines", which all the 1933 2 1/2 guldens have. The 1932 and 1938 with the "Grof Haar" are much more rare and valuable. Fakes abound. 1933 NL 2 1-1 g obv.JPG 1933 NL 2 1-2 g rev.JPG

    In the UK they are usually called "Toy Money". Made by Lauer and sold to help educate small children on money. (Bearing in mind the weird system we had back then, it took some educating!)
    Gaming Tokens are usually bigger - around the size of a Quarter in American speak - and often brass or gold coloured.

    Last of the British Queens I have - Mary II conjoined bust with her husband William III.
    1689 HC 1.JPG 1689 HC 2.JPG
    The only other "ruling" Queen would be Queen Jane, but as she only managed 9 days before being deposed by Mary I she did not have time to mint any coins. Matilda claimed the throne in the mid 12th century against her cousin Stephen, but never got of it. There are coins from Matilda but they are very scarce and I have none!
