After cleaning my Bag-o-Pennies in the tumbler. This token magically appeared.
Same design on both sides.

Not sure how old it is, it's probably been some time since you could buy anything for a nickel.

Appears to be a slot machine token.
As RACE TRACK SLOTS were introduced to Ontario, starting in the mid 1990's, many interesting SLOT TOKENS were produced, in denominations of 5¢, 25¢, 50¢, $1.oo, $2.oo, and $5.oo.
With OVER 10,000 MACHINES located in these facilities- that's a whole lot of tokens that were produced!
WESTERN FAIR RACEWAY (750+ Machines- SIX tokens issued) 900 King St. East, London, ON N5W 5K3
•$0.05 (token introduced well after opening), $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $5.00
