18th Century English Provincial token coinage
or "Conder" tokens

Introduction

Probably the most popular of the English token series, they were avidly collected 200 years ago, and are still avidly collected today. The social, economic, and political lives of the people during the 1780-1800 period are mirrored here. The Americans call them "Conder" tokens, after James Conder, an early cataloger of the series.

The major reference work on "Conder" tokens is The Provincial Token Coinage of the 18th Century by R. Dalton and S. H. Hamer. Simply referred to as "D&H" by most collectors, it contains descriptions of thousands of tokens, with 4500 plated. The latest reprint, done in 2004, is available.
