Token: US Two Bits Play Money
This play money token is part of a series made in aluminum by Tracies, Inc. of Massachusetts. This particular series dates to the mid-20th century and contained a 'half buck' and 'henny penny,' among others. Tracies also made play money out of other metals (even wood) and there are collectors who seek out these items.
This does not mean they are valuable, however, because they are still just mass-produced novelty items -- an eager collector might pay one U.S. dollar or two to acquire a play coin they are missing from their collection.

Requester description: Each side has a crude double horse head where the heads are connected through the neck, one upside down and facing opposite the other. There are raised dots surrounding this image and one side appears the words 'TWO BITS' as well as something I cannot read at the bottom. The other side has the words 'TWENTY FIVE' as well as the raised dots and horse head design. There is a raised circle enclosing these designs and I believe on it may say 'Hong Kong' on the outer edge.
