Meteorite coins?

Coin n. A small piece of metal usually flat and circular, authorized by a government for use as money.

Medallion n. Something resembling a large medal, such as an oval or circular design used as decoration.

I have a seen meteorite coins and meteorite medallions and there is a difference.

OTOH, the meteorite coins I have seen, although legal tender in the country issued, seem to be more contrived for resale (similar to certain countries which issue postage stamps mainly for export) than for actual use in the general population.
