We have the Huguenot méreau available in pewter, brass or antique brass finish for

The méreau (plural méreaux) is a circular token which the Huguenots
used in France from the 1550's to the mid 19th century. During holy
communion an elder would give, before the service, a méreau to each
parishioner who qualified to receive the sacrament. The others, who
did not attend catechism regularly or had been admonished by the
consistory, would not receive a méreau. During the service each individual
would hand his méreau to an elder standing next to the
communion table before receiving bread and wine.
On this méreauclassicbronzeresources@fuse.net>hows an open
bible, which is opened at St. Luke chapter 12, verse 32, saying in
French: "Have no fear little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure
to give you the kingdom." Above the Bible is a symbolic shining sun and six stars.
It looks like pewter and has a diameter of about 1-3/4”.
