QUERY: TAYLOR & CHALLEN MEDAL INFORMATION SOUGHT

Web site visitor Graeme of Glasgow, Scotland writes:

I am currently in possession of a small coin which I believe may have some history, however I am looking for some information. The coin has printed on one side 'Taylor and Challen Ltd Birmingham' and on the other side 'Minting Machinery'.

The coin belongs to me after it was given to me by a member of my family a long time ago. If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate any response. Thanks in advance

We had an earlier E-Sylum query for information on Taylor & Challen's minting equipment (see links below), but I don't believe we've ever discussed these medals (or are they tokens)? Below are some images I found at the CoinArchives.com site. Can anyone provide more information? Are these medals cataloged in a book? -Editor
