Unusual 'Standing Liberty' Token

I got this out of a local dealer's junk token box. It is made of aluminum and has a reversed and rather crude rendition of MacNeil's Standing Liberty design, with the word 'LIBERTAD' above. On the reverse it says 'VALUE 25'. I bought it because I like the crudeness of the design as well as the repunched '5' on the reverse, and it was super-cheap. My first thought was that it might be Cuban, because 'liberty' is in Spanish. The reverse is in English, however, so I'm not sure what to make of it. I know there was a large American entertainment industry in Cuba prior to the Communist revolution, so I'm wondering if this could be connected to it. Does anyone know what this is?
