I have two tokens or medals of Venezuela that I'm hoping someone can identify for me. I'm guessing that the side with the image of Simon Bolivar is the obverse, right?
If so then each reverse has the image and name of a state?
Does anyone know who made them and when?
Also, do they have any value?
Any information that anyone can provide is greatly appreciated.

At least according to numista, they are souvenir tokens, made from brass. They have the map side as the obverse.
