The last one is a coronation medal for the city of northampton. Maybe it was presented by the mayor to Scotland yard. Maybe that is someones name.

The Middle is a piece of something, the top should probably read Duke of Edinburgh, I can't decide if I think it is a shop sign, A token for shopping discount for duke of edinburgh award winners or something else.

Haven't the foggiest what the first one is.

Weights, dimensions and guesses at material would help the search.

The top one reminds me of one of those bracteate pfennigs from an early German city state - but they are normally in silver (if in low grade)

I've located a similar medallion on the internet:

These gilt medallions were issued by the corporations or town councils of numerous British towns and cities on the occasion of a coronation, and distributed to local schoolchildren or perhaps to employees of the Corporation.

That's an interesting idea, the hand is similar to Heller coins, and that could be a Stylized P F, though I am inclined to think its a BF. All the ones I could find though are squares made into circles, not the other way round.

The second picture of the first piece is upside down. I wonder if it isn't a coin weight.

I believe the other side is too. Though now that you've turned that one I can clearly see it is a mounted knight with a sword not some many legged monstrosity.
