I am in possession of a coronation token that I haven't found in online coin or exonumia databases.

The token was found in a lot of various european coins dating from 1870 to 1922. My assumption would be that the token is from this time period, but it is possible that the token was added to this lot of coins as late as 1990.

Would anyone know the origin of this token? I've understood from some forums that many such tokens were privately made, with a very  limited value at best. Could it be part of a series of tokens commemorating various coronations?

On the obverse there is text "WIL.IV & ADELAIDE KING & QUEEN OF GREAT BRITAN" with a picture of a male and a female looking towards right.

On the reverse there is text "ASCENDED JUNE 26 1830 CROWNED SEP 8 1831" with a picture of a crown and two scepters on a pillow, with radiation.

I would appreciate all help!
