Australia & New Zealand 19th Cent Tradesmen Tokens

Picked up a little group of these, and noticed there is no topic about them.

Some folks here must collect them! I noticed Glen has offered a few over the years, and they always sell.

These tokens were privately issued and served as small change (since there were no low-value official coins at the time) and also to advertise the businesses that issued them.

Really pleased to get the Australian one at the lower right due to the condition. They usually come pretty banged up.

The Krause World Coin Catalogue lists these.

I've managed to collect a few NZ and European ones over the years.

Might look to sell them someday soon if anyone is interested
