Medallion 1 is Ottoman - that's all I can say about it.

Token 1 looks to be imitating the design of a silver crown or gold sovereign (British coins) and advertising a website.

Token 2 is meant to look like a Roman coin of the emperor Diocletian. Certainly too crude to be a forgery, maybe meant as play money?

The first piece is imitation Ottoman, looks like a Turkish coin but with garbled legend. Even the ascension date is made up - (AH) 1227 (which even looks like 12027). There've never been coins (or official medallions) with this date. Cheap jewelry piece.

The second piece is a very crude, hand made, coronation medal of George V of the UK. They did use the famous Pistrucci's design of St.George slaying the dragon which is featured on some crowns and sovereigns. There are tons of different coronation medals for each British monarch starting with Victoria, with various degrees of sophistication (your is on the lower end). I don't really see anything about a website, I'd say it was made before the internet.

Piece three is an imitation of a Roman coin, and it might have been a button.

Right you are. I couldn't make out the word that I now see is "coronation". It looked to me like the end of the legend was ".com", but it was just a combination of the low quality and my imperfect eyesight.
