Austrian donation token for the Winter Relief in 1936. 5 schilling piece sells for around 100 Euros, 100 schilling piece sells for around 200 Euros. Google "winterhilfswerk gau wien" to see other examples.

Honestly, I don't know. The ones I have seen have a common reverse with the amounts on the obverse.
