This brass medallion was clearly issued as an advertising piece. In Victorian times, it was quite common for businesses to issue advertising tokens or medallions. These were often inexpensive to produce, and would be a very durable alternative to a business card. They were also issued before Victoria's reign, commonly as early as about 1787, when private tokens started to be issued for small change, and at the time that Boulton & Watt made coin and medal production more efficient by the use os steam powered machinery.
