These "coins" are called hacienda tokens and were used to pay ranch workers for their labors.  The families of the workers usually lived on the ranch land and were essentially treated very much like medieval serfs.  The tokens could only be used in the ranch company store and so the workers were tied completely to the ranch owners.   The store sold general goods including food, tools, cooking utensils, clothing,  tobacco, fuel oil,  lamps, bedding, simple furniture and other essentials. The tokens come in many shapes and sizes and are made from brass, wood, white metal, copper and even bone.  They are sometimes even painted as you have observed.

The tokens usually state the name of the hacienda or ranch a denomination (they didn't use Peso or centavo as these were official National designations).  The denominations were made up by the Ranch owners and they pegged the company store prices in tokens to a relationship to the national currency.

Values depend on the rarity of the item in the market place and the current collector interest.  Prices range from a dollar or so to more than $100.

Winner of this auction will receive coin pictured here.
