The piece you are describing is an 19th century advertising token, common in this period as a way of advertising a store or in this case a newspaper. Many times these tokens had monetary value, very much like product coupons are used today as an incentive to purchase a particular product.
There are many collectors of exonumia. You might want to contact other collectors of tokens and medals if this token has gotten you interested. Try the American Numismatic Association site to request a listing of organizations and dealers dedicated to tokens and medals.
