@hug, this one also has a similar counterstamp so I'm think it is a museum replica too. See the page linked here below for a similar replica, but in better shape. Since you seem to have several of these, it is provably worth looking at the whole museum reproduction website as you research what you've got.

I do note that these are made from pewter so performing a specific gravity test should allow you to know what is silver and what isn't.

Spence is quite right, another museum gift shop novelty coin.
The upper left corner of the first photo may be a clue to your having more than one of these?

I got them off ebay they were advertised as antique coins so I thought they were old so may have a claim for misleading description?

Yes for sure you should try to return these replicas. Best would be to just send back the entire lot rather than try to figure out which ones are real and which ones aren't. Good luck!

100% yes.
If described as you say then this was fraudulent. Send them back. Ebay will refund your money.

If you want something real and cheap, I'd recommend:

AG&S Gillis https://gilliscoins.com/special_off...ed/index.htm
Simon Hall https://hallshammeredcoins.com/?page=home

Henry III and Edwards I-III are often cheap.

You can also get an idea of what the real ones look like. This site will give an idea of what replicas look like https://www.museumreproductions.co.uk/shop/
