Tournai is a once-French village in Belgium, and their coat-of-arms is a single tower, much like the one displayed on the obverse of Charles' token. The cross on the reverse terminates in letters on each arm, and as such seems to form a monogram. These can be puzzling to read, but I see two C's to the right, a combined T-E at the bottom, a H to the left, and an X at the top.
So far Charles' item has us stumped. When this happens (it happens a lot!), we defer to the tremendous group of numismatists at World of Coins. We have posted Charles' token there. Watch this link:

BTW, the company 'TechNord' has a hollow diamond for a logo, just like the one displayed in the center, and has its headquarters in Tournai. What an energy company would need a token for, I don't know. It doesn't make for very good advertisement, being so cryptic. Alternatively, the token might be a souvenir from the Notre Dame de Tournai or 'Tournai Cathedral', which is a World Heritage Site and a tourist destination.
If anybody has any information about this token, please leave us a comment using the button found at the bottom right on this page!
