Sneaky Tokens







Apparently many governments didnt provide enough small coin denominations, back in the day. So if you had to break a hundy, there'd be no change! Clever businesses minted their own small change tokens that could only be used at that shop. Sneaky.
Anyway, the result was some interesting tokens, that are a little more rigourous than most official coinage I think.
