Hi, I recently went from being a passive collector to a more active one, and came across these three items that I've been unable to identify. I've taken the first two to a couple of dealers who also weren't able to identify them. They mentioned perhaps they are related to the Freemasons.

I know the third one isn't gold, but I'm curious if it's anything that I should hold onto for numismatic value. Just to be clear,

Images 1 & 2: Same Coin
Images 3 & 4: Same Coin
Images 5 & 6: Same Coin

I appreciate any insights that get provided!

The first appears to be a Russian Medal commemorating the action at Chemulpo

The second is a Freemason ditty, the all seeing eye symbol but because of the crown would be British, possibly the Hellfire Club, one of the "secret societies" that the intellectually elite belonged to, Ben Franklin was a member. Supposed used human sacrifices/cannibalism because of all the human remains found in 20th century dig, place burned down around those dates I think.

Third is Chinese zodiac, year of goat(2014?), looks a brass replica of gold bar

I was able to get some more information after BigSilver replied (Thanks!), and it's rather conflicting.

First, I found this link that says what I have is a cheap replica: http://gmic.co.uk/topic/45833-chemulpo-1904-medal/

Then, I found this Baldwin's catalog which indicates otherwise (The link opens a PDF, see page 7): https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct...PjOIUP158GTA

The clouds are where you can see a big difference. I'm going to email Baldwins and see if they reply.
