    I've moved this to the General Forum where it fits better.

    I've never seen an actual Imperial Cog coin. There are plenty of Legion/Garrison challenge coins out there, but I haven't seen one with just a cog.

    I've seen pictures of this one from Hasbro, not sure how they were distributed:

    The other side has what I guess is the Imperial Palace on it:

    I think they were a European thing, but I'm not sure.

    I saw some things that came like that with the delux edition of the SW: Monopoly PC game.

    It matches the artwork from the era:

    Also, numismatic articles on it:

    It would appear to be one of the variants used for the Monopoly game. Others seem to list a denomination in arabic numerals.
