A copper alloy post-medieval to modern 'conder' token. The token depicts a druid's head on one side and a script cypher of RNG on the reverse. It was issued in by the Paris Mine Company on Anglesey, North Wales in 1793. The edge of the token would have carried the inscription 'Payable in London, Bristol & Lancaster', but the edge is now too worn to make this out. For comparisons on this database see LANCUM-33D046 and SUSS-77F5E3.


Thanks to David Williams for the comparisons.
