For the benefit of our non Australian friends,
David Jones is a large department store chain in Australia.
Business not so good for them, with on line trading.

As far as the gift tokens are concerned, I am really having to dig into my memory, from decades ago, and thus stand to be corrected.

David Jones issued bronze silver and gold colored gift tokens.
The bronze $25 were bronze, the $50 were silver probably copper nickel, and the $100 gold were also copper nickel, probably gold plated.
?Issued in the late 1990's?

Noble Numismatics - Macquarie Street Sydney, may be able to provide all of the relevant information on them that has been published. They are very good on the history of Australian numismatics.
Give them a 'phone call.

I'm thinking more 1970s than 1990s.

They're also illegal. Section 22 of the 1965 Coinage Act prohibits the private manufacture of tokens that offer to be equivalent of, or exchangeable with, legal tender.

And despite my years of reading Australian coin magazines and coin club newsletters and publications, I have never once even heard of these items, except for a post made last year on this very forum:

Ah @Sap I think they weren't manufacture by DJ, they were actually made by Perth Mint for DJ (they paid Perth Mint, dont ask me how it works). Stand to be corrected.
