where this comes from?

In Numista three tokens with the same design (but with different denominations) are described as South African: A reference to Hern's Handbook on South African Coins and Patterns is given (unfortunately I do not have access to this book).

In the catalogue of a Swedish coin auction a token with similar design is described as coming from Storbritannien (i.e. Great Britain), Birmingham (Large file.)
On the other hand, a 1949 periodical mentions "Osborne, Garret & Co., Ltd., of London“.

Two Ebay auctions describe this as "Australian Barbers Check Token":
