It will be either lead or, if it's hard, possibly an odd lead alloy. :thumbsup:

They don’t look like the lead that you see in bits around the field as that tends to be pretty pure. Some of these tokens are a bit more robustly made with all sorts of alloys thrown in. That’s why they don’t corrode much either. A lovely find :Star:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
