There's a £12.97 similar 'thank you' token selling for £1.50 on eBay - but no other description, unfortunately.

A groat is an old English or Scottish silver coin worth 4 old pennies, with later issues being worth 8 or even 12 old pennies.
They were in use as legal tender until the late 1880's in England and the early 1900's in Scotland.
As the coin pictured has £14.97 as a value, it has to be dated after 1971.

can't be a groat then. i found it down the back of an old soafer we are changing just wanted to know what it may have been used for "token" for what ?

a groat is one eight of a old penny, like a farthing is one quarter of an old penny.

the picture is an old token from the seaside arcade machines from years ago. the tokens would come out instead of hoards of coins. you had to take the token to the cashier who would normally have a counter in the arcade and exchage for cash.
