19th Century Copper Tokens

19th Century Copper Tokens

Between 1807 and 1821, no regal copper coins were struck resulting in a shortage of small change. This caused major problems, particularly in the growing industrial cities of the Midlands and north of England. For a period of 4 years, between 1811 and 1815, numerous factories, tradespeople and even workhouses issued tokens. The images depicted are generally of an industrial nature, showing factories and machinery, thus giving us a visual picture of the growing expansion of the machine age. They are particularly difficult to find in high grade.
