This section contains information about the fascinating histories of the 18th Century British Provincial Tokens (Conder Tokens) and other related numismatic items.
Americans usually call these tokens “Conder” tokens, after James Conder, an early cataloger of the series.
Content borrowed from The Copper Corner website by permission. (See this website for much additional historical information and many photos of tokens and medals.)
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 2015, is available from multiple sources including Bill McKivor, Charlie Davis and Kolbe & Fanning in the US and Merfyn Williams and Alan Judd in the UK.
