I'm attaching some pictures of 5 medals or coins or tokens
I'm really not sure what they are.
I can't read what language is on them.
Since I can't read them, I'm not sure of the obverse/reverse or up/down orientation.
Any help anyone can provide is very appreciated.
I'll put a name in front of each one for reference in any comments.

Animal token?



Large Round Hole



Large Square Hole



Small Square Hole



Small Round Hole

First one is an Israel telephone token. The circle of numbers is from an old fashioned telephone dial.

I agree that the first one is an Israeli Telephone token.

@okiepb, I'd like to recommend that you get the free coinoscope app for your phone. On your last coin posted, this app pointed me at the Satangs of Thailand, such as the one in this link on numista:

Coinoscope correctly nailed #2 also: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces72609.html

#1: Israel telephone token, dated in the Hebrew calendar to the year that converts to AD 1966.

#2 and #3: Chinese/Korean "eight trigrams" Taoist charms. Not coins.

#4: China, cash coin of the Qian Long emperor (as noted by Seeker55 above). Despite being over 200 years old, these are incredibly common, being one of the highest mintage coins ever produced on the planet, with billions of coins made each year of his sixty-year reign.

#5: Thailand, 1 satang, dated Year 2471 of the Thai Buddhist calendar (AD 1928). Curiously, that date is not in the Catalogue page for this coin. The edge also looks a little crude compared to the catalogue coin (which shows both the pictures upside-down, by the way). I'm wondering if your coin might be a circulating counterfeit.
